    UPS just dropped off my new GH3. Ordered in September, Canceled in October, reordered in late November, arrived today.

    On first touch it does not seem too large to me. Bigger than my Ep3, but much smaller than my recently departed 5DMKII. Now to try it out with the 12-35 Panni zoom (which I wish was 12-50).

    New images to come!

    Ugh! GH3 has the same long battery charger cord as the Olympus! Fortunately I have my little Apple thingy

    GH3 handles easily without an attached grip and is lighter than the EM-5 with the grip, which it needs. Some folks have fussed about the size of the 3 which is larger than the 2, but it's not "that" big. Can't put on a pancake lens and shove it in a pocket like some of the small Pannis but that's not what i wanted it for anyway. And I don't like the "dirty baby diaper" approach to using cameras without an eye level viewfinde!r

    Congrats on the GH3.....I too received mine and went today to B&H and bought the 12-35 f2.8, 100-300, 35-100 f2.8 and the Sigma 19mm and 30mm- five lenses in all- I'm covered and everything fits in a medium sized duffle bag! Loving m4/3 and selling my recently purchased full frame Sony A-99 camera and tons of lenses...goodbye full size and heft!

    Bought these with the OM-d. I was surprised with the 100-300. Nice bokeh colors and sharp.

    GH3 w 12-35 ISO 200 OOC Jpegs

    I'm liking it after a few images. Nice grip, feels great in my hands. Don't think I'll need the auxiliary grip as I did with EM5. Bot the GH3 primarily for video and haven't had time to try that yet. I also like the EM5 with the grip, but it's not so good for video. Would I miss the IBIS, if I sold EM5 and had matching GH3s? Better think this over! GAS is painful!

    two bodies the same is great to have.

    For several years I shot weddings on the weekends, but never owned top of the line Nikon's. I could own the next body down (several generations of Nikon bodies) than that top of the line model and own two of them. That was important when shooting a wedding, as I didn't have to change gears moving from one body to a different body. Today, I shoot with two G3's, and don't plan on buying another camera or lens for years to come. That said, I just purchased a wireless remote trigger for my G3 from B&H. So I am still figuring out ways to spend money.
