Re: GX7 and GH3, why skimp?

I love my GH3, handling, and results. But I wanted a small camera that could take the same lenses so I bought a GX7. Now I think I love the GX7 just as much as the GH3! Essentially, I now have two sets:

GX7 with 14-140 Mk2 and 20mm. My travel light set.

I just got back from a short vacation, so the kits I brought…

GX7, 7-14mm, Voigtländer 17.5mm, Voigtländer 42.5mm, Nikon 105mm f2.8 AI-S macro, 100-300mm.

GX1, 14-42mm II, 20mm, 45-150mm.

My girlfriend used the GX1. The 20mm stayed in the bag. The Nikon I used for a rainforest hike, but switched to the Voigtländer 42.5mm because it was easier to handle, especially when trying to focus in contorted positions . The 42.5mm, with it's .23m (9") minimum focus distance, is excellent for close-ups of small critters and vegetation. I used the 45-150mm for a few things, mostly when the 100-300mm was too unwieldy.

Its just great to have so many lens choices available!
