Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Review @ Dpreview "The Panasonic GH3 is the new standard bearer for video on a consumer stills camera."

"Though I had expected a larger leap in image quality over the GH2, the GH3 is by far the better all-round camera. The image is much cleaner when shooting high contrast scenes with a lot of shade and it's better in low light. While it no longer offers the slightly wider 1.86x crop sensor of the GH2 or such bullet-proof performance in terms of moiré & aliasing, it extends the already attractive feature set to new levels. 1080/60p gives you the creative freedom of smooth slow-motion at the highest resolution. 72Mbit ALL-I and 1080/60p in the same camera are missing from the $15,000 Canon EOS C300, let alone the GH3's full-frame DSLR rivals.

By foregoing the GH2's size advantage, Panasonic has pitched the GH3 against some seriously capable cameras - not least the D7100. And, while the improved ergonomics and added external controls make the GH3 a more pleasant camera to use than its predecessor, when considered from a stills photography perspective, it doesn't stand out against that competition. And, of course, it also has to stand up to its Micro Four Thirds peers, such as the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and it simply doesn't have the JPEGs or outright charisma to do that, either."
