PPS. If the GH3 looks like a 7D why would one buy it rather than a 7D or a D7000? If I am going to carry a bigger camera I want a bigger sensor and established lens line-up to go along with it.


haha I'm with you on that one!
I don't want BIGGER cameras with SMALLER sensors!

I agree generally about bigger camera/smaller sensor, but the overwhelming massive difference in weight savings for me has been the lenses. not the body. Yes, the OM-D body is small...but my crop body cameras weren't huge. However, good luck carrying a set of high quality AF 1.4/1.8/2 lenses on anything else. You'll double the weight, easily.

I could easily conceive of a m4/3rds shooter wanting a slightly beefier body and still being able to stick with the lens lineup.

Yes, I'm aware there are fairly small MF fast lenses available for every system - I've owned and/or used many of them. They still aren't light, though...and they don't autofocus!

If all you ever carry is a body and a slow-ish mid-range zoom, the difference is smaller, obviously. If you have a full kit, it's night and day.

At this stage of the game in m43 land:

Fast AF-C tracking > IBIS > Faster AF-S

Maybe it doesn't actually make that much difference? I mean with the GH1 I thought it was supposed to maintain 12mpx or be very close. And for the GH2 I thought it was supposed maintain 16mpx or close but it doesn't... Unless there's something I'm missing? If all it was was keeping the frame corners on the image circle perimeter then how much difference does that really make? Maybe almost none in actuality? <shrug>


Main point was different. It had something to do with lens, tho not sure how to write that. They wanted to maintain FOV or look from certain focal lenghts across different crops. I think it was FOV, cause thats what you loose when you crop. Mpix wasnt important part.

Tho I always thought they could let users use whole sensor (easily covered with adapted lens).

Tired of those "fastest AF in the world" claims. Try using different lens with different FL / aperture and the result would be very different.


Manufacturers know the majority of consumers never bother to read the fine print... "fastest AF in the world among Panasonic GH3 cameras"

How is the actual AF-C for stills? All the google search did was bring up a lot of videos. Impressive but I haven't really gotten into video making.

For me this is a good thing. It's a bigger body but if Panasonic or Olympus cracks AF-C and keeps up on the sensor side there will no longer be any reason to keep my DSLR kit. Which would free up so much money for M4/3 lens etc.

BTW there seems to be some misunderstanding of IBIS in the OM-D. It's not just all lenses are stabilized, it is also potentially stabilized better because it can handle twist along the lens axis. Something that no in len system will manage without some extremely fancy optics.

I am totally in agreement with you. IMO, the OM-D and GH3 are as good as the Canon 7D, and in some instances (like AF speed and accuracy) it's also better than the 5D II. So I don't mind a slightly bigger 43 body that will take all the fabulous and compact/lightweight 43 lenses. However, the lack of IBIS in the GH3 is a deal breaker for me. I hope the "pro version" of the OM-D will have the GH3 form factor and ergonomics.
