I'm looking to trade up my G5 for a GH3 for the following reasons GH3 is dropping below $1000, and probably going to hit $900 or less during the holidays. I want the -3ev low light autofocusing that the GH3 has. The live blown highlight blinky-thing would be really handy. I want more manual controls. Having to dive into the menu to change focus or shooting modes is tiresome. The GH4/5/whatever is looking to be much more expensive, the main feature will be 4K (which is NOT something I need), and will be hard to find for months after launch if GH3 is any indication. Downside is that the next GH will also probably have focus peaking and in-body stabilization, but the only lens I'd need that with is the 20mm, which I use for low-light areas with fast moving subjects. Any shutter speed low enough to require IBIS would result in a motion blurred subject anyway. I wouldn't really use focus peaking if the camera can focus in -3ev. I want less shadow noise, an supposedly the GH3 is a leap ahead in this area. I shoot RAW, and even if I switch to JPG, I'd probably screw around with the settings until I got what I wanted anyway. Straight OOC JPG isn't relevant. I mainly use larger lenses (35-100mm, 100-300) and would like a beefier grip. My hand is just large enough that my pinky is usually underneath the G5, which isn't comfortable with a large lens. GH3 appears just tall enough to fit my whole hand. The girlfriend needs a new camera and would be more than happy with my G5, which saves me the expense of a purchase for her. Downside is that the GH3 is supposedly twice the weight (which does come with water sealing, so that's more of a wash, no pun intended) and I don't do a lot of video. Given the list, do you (dear reader) think A) I have enough reasons to move up (and that it's not GAS) B) That the GH3 would be the best move for me.
