Here is the GH3 (and preorder) Pre-order price from Samy's is $1300 body only, which doesn't seem unreasonable if performance matches claims: Panasonic | DMC-GH3 Lumix Body (Black) | DMCGH3KBODY Some things I like, some things I'm disappointed in. Pluses: Build Quality ERgos / Control layout 5 Fn buttons! 3 Dials! no more pressing WB button by accident roomier button spacing larger, better grip (it appears) Built-in flash (unlike Oly) Larger battery (1860mah vs. 1200) Minuses: * no mention of multi-aspect sensor (makes me think Panasonic bought the sensor from someone, rather than building it themselves) * shutter still tops out a 1/4000 second. Seriously Panasonic, if you're billing this as a "pro" caliber body, you've got to do better than that. * lowest ISO 200 (also makes me think it's not Panasonic's sensor -- what happened to the rumors of ISO 100? * Actual Size information, finally: * Larger battery (yet another different battery / charger to worry about) GH2 vs. GH3 size difference (GH3 specs first): 5.23 / 4.88 inches wide (.35 inch, or about 1/3 inch wider) 3.68 / 3.53 inches tall (.15 inch taller) 3.23 / 2.98 inches deep (.25 [1/4] inch deeper, most of which appears to be the grip 16.58 / 13.82 oz. (2.76 oz heavier) This ain’t hardly a D800 folks! Compared to the OM-D (GH3 specs first): 5.23 / 4.8 wide (.4 inches wider) 3.68 / 3.5 high (.18 inches taller) 3.23 / 1.69 deep (most of the different, though, is in the grip and the EVF. I can’t find any specs on the size with grip attached, but it’s obviously much closer. In fact, the OM-D with horizontal grip looks like it might be a bit taller than the GH3.) 16.58 / 13 oz Compared to a 7D (GH3 specs first): 5.23 / 5.8 wide x 3.68 / 4.4 tall x 3.23 x 2.8 inches deep (The depth figure, I think, is misleading. It’s mostly the grip, and the extension of the EVF past the rear of the body. The actual depth of the body itself is obviously much smaller.) The 7D weighs 26.9 oz, or 10 oz more than the GH3.
