    If anyone is looking for the perfect mounting plate for the Panasonic Lumix DMC- G3.

    Here it is:

    Kirk PN#: PZ-130
    Kirk Enterprises : Camera Plate for Panasonic DMC-GF1

    * I called Kirk Enterprises first to get the specs/height on the front lip because I was concerned it may hit the silver bevel around the lens mounting plate.

    = It Clears perfectly and looks as if it was made for the Lumix G3 !!!
    * Plate clears the battery door mounted up in the center slot with room to spare

    * note: Double check to make sure the plate lip doesnt ride on the curvature of the camera body and clears past it. I left a little light/clearance. The Kirk Ent. PZ-130 plate with its mounting pad/material doesnt move at all.

    I believe this is the same plate Kirk Enterprises recommends for Oly PEN MFT bodies as well as the PAN GF-1.

    Hope this helps other G3 owners !

    Have a great one

    Is the recess deep and wide enough to hold the Black Rapid mount?
