Some problems are not yet fixed as for Nov 2013.

I just got a GH3 (Nov 15, 2013, firmware v1.2) and can report that two of the issues mentioned in this guide are still there:

1. VF black out when shooting a single JPEG at high ISO.  The black out is about 1 sec, which renders your camera essentially inoperable during that period, making it difficult to shoot multiple shots in quick consection to capture the moment.

2. VF halo/smearing.  This is unlikely a QC issue in my opinions, and they are unlikely to ever fix it (judging by the possibility of a GH4 is coming soon).  This issue, while annoying, does not affect the way I use the VF to shoot though since when I do, my eye will be looking straight at the subject, at which point all halo goes away.
