Has the G3 ever looked better?

    I've never been 100% happy with how the G3 looks. Minor concern in the grand scheme of things, but "camera porn" and "show me your adapted lens" threads wouldn't exist if we didn't care at least a little. I must say, though, that the new PL25 just fits the little camera. Has it ever looked better than this:

    I like the PL45 on it, too, but the size is just right on the PL25.

    it does look like a good match, but I have to say that it would look better on a gf1 body:wink:

    It does look like the perfect match!

    I may be biased, but I think it looks pretty awesome on my E-P3 as well:

    I dig the all-black barrel and it feels well-balanced on the E-P3 body.

    The G3 looks sexier with a 45 1.8 mounted to it :tongue::

    With Panasonic going with X zoom lenses, I could see Olympus going with longer telephoto primes. I hope the 4th generation PENs will include more megapixels and a built-in EVF. If that's the case I'll switch over to Olympus next round.

    The G3 looks prettier than the GH2. I like the slightly smaller EVF hump and smaller grip. Never held one though. So not sure if the smaller grip would be a bummer for me.

    But that PL25 sure sits nicely on that G3. And the EP3. Would look nice on my GH2 too ... if I could ever get a hold of one!! Or a 45/1.8. Aargh. :)

    I ended up getting a half case for my G3, handles a little better.

    Can you post a picture of your G3 with the half case? Where did you get it?

    Sorry, just realized you already did. I have seen this case for sale but was unsure about the fit and quality. Also I don't understand how it mounts to the camera. Help.

    Yes you can....eBay has them but if you prefer, one of the forum members here just put one up for sale. Check the forum marketplace.

    carpandean... that really is a great looking set-up... the 25 looks just right on the G3! I'm eagerly awaiting that lens myself... as well as the 45/1.8.

    The G3 is a very handsome looking camera, as well as being exceptionally versatile and capable.

    The quality is excellent. Real tanned stitched leather. There's a brass screw mount on the bottom.
