Curious... what does the Panasonic GH3 offer that the Olympus OM-D doesn't?

Better video, flip out and twist articulating screen rather than just flip out, debatable more comfortable grip with tradeoff of larger size and generic DSLR mini like styling

IQ should be similar I'm sure, but lack of IBIS would be a real decision factor for a lot of people I think

The lack of IBIS is a big difference. With the firmware update giving the OMD a more quieter operation, I often forget it's there.

I have a GH2 and an OM-D. I only recently purchased the OM-D. The image quality from the OMD is significantly better, IMHO. The highlight roll-off is much better, a substantial difference. Also, the OMD noise in shadows is much better, IMHO.

I prefer the interface/menus on the GH2.

I prefer the multi-aspect sensor of the GH2 a lot, but the GH3 does not have a multi-aspect sensor unfortunately.

I like the grip/feel better of the GH2. The OM-D with RRS grip is pretty good though.

The GH2 is better for video, so everyone says. I only use them for stills.

Thanks... I've got the OMD and have been thinking about getting a second micro 4/3rds body.

The GH3 looked interesting but I've also thought about getting a smaller PEN series camera from Olympus.

Looks like OM-D still has the upperhand...

The more I use the OMD, the more I like it. I like the GH3 but really skeptical about having two micro 4/3rd systems.

Might just sink the cash into another lens but that is still a weak point. Sure you can use legacy lenses with micro four-thirds but I would really like to see the collection of micro 4/3rd lenses grow to add more faster options.

The GH3 looks (to me) as better WRT ergonomics but IBIS is a significant feature at low-light. If I could, I'd buy both and use the GH3 in daytime and the OM-D at night.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

+1. The GH-3 certainly looks a lot more comfortable to hold and to use. The buttons are better designed and the menu is probably more intuitive too. Olympus should take a close look at the ergonomics of this camera. To me it looks like a baby Canon DSLR. I may get one when the jury is out on the IQ ... and if there is still no news of the OM-Dx in the near term.

I'm probably buying both, the OM-D for travel/backup and the GH3 for work. They are distinctively different and both have their strong sides, strong enough for me to consider dumping my Nikon DX gear.

Ah yes, clearly the GH3 will be better for work.

Curious... any idea if the GH3's AF is better suited for wildlife or sports than the OMD?

if you look at the bottom right hand corner of both at 1600 it looks almost the same except the omd has way more noise redux and consequently looks pretty soft. the gh3 looks way shaprer but more noisey. a draw.

Grip, hackable most likely. Bit more like dSLR. And its Panasonic from inside out. Which means different look from pics.

And AF seems pretty amazing..
