Bildschirmfoto 2013-02-18 um 21.43.29

A limited number of Panasonic GH3 cameras is right now in Stock at Adorama (Click here) and at Samys (Click here).

P.S.: And more than ten refurbished E-M5 cameras with 12-50mm kit lens are for sale for 1,029$ on eBay US (Click here).

  • Still There

    The bad news is that there are only a limited number of GH3 cameras available for sale at Adorama.

    The good news is that those cameras will be available for a long, long time.

    Sensor “as good as” the e-m5’s, a full development year later, and a significantly bigger size than the GH2, for no apparent good reason.

    The Panasonic elephant gave birth to a mouse.

      The GH3 pretty much matches the OMD’s image quality. External controls and ergonomics are where the GH3 blows the OMD away… and not requiring a $200 or $300 add-on grip to make it comfortable.

        The nice thing about the grip is you can take it off and get a tiny camera when using a small lens.

        With the GH3 you have a nice big camera but you spend the same cash as buying an OMD with grip, and still you nave to by a grip for the GH3 if you want vertical shutter button or more battery power.

        The ergonomics and dials may well be better for some. Having a small camera that takes a grip for when a user needs a bigger camera may be better for some.

        • WOW

          The GH3 DWARFS the E-M5!!!


          Well, not really, plus the ergonomics are MUCH better than the E-M5.

          Get over it.

            Hey, thanks for pointing that out.

            The EM5 with grip is the same size as the GH3. I thought it was larger than that.

            So my reasoning stands, getter ergonomics, buy the GH3. Desire for a less expensive camera that is smaller than the GH3 while compromising ergonomics, get the EM5.

            If you want a camera that is smaller or larger with worse ergonomics for the same price, get the EM5 with grip.

            If you want a camera that is much more expensive that has good ergonomics and can become smaller, get the GH3 with grip.

            Thanks for the encouragement, I’m over it now.

      how much better can a 16 megapixel sensor get from another 16mp sensor?

  • Bite Me

    Congratulations Panny fans! You get to pay $300 extra for video features… on a camera that’s DEVOID of IBIS & small footprint! Make sure to bring along your tripod when you use your PRIME LENSES for flix.

    Oh yes, you get extra defective issues with your bundle.

    I myself am looking forward to purchase the GH3… as a bargain/discontinued discount this winter.

      So basically, you hate it because you can’t afford it? Sad.

      Obviously, Panasonic didn’t want a tiny footprint. They’re trying to lure buyers who might be thinking of a Nikon D7000 or something similar, and the bigger size and grip make for better handling with heavier zooms like the 12-35 and 35-100.

      As for the “extra defective issues with your bundle”… sorry, what does that mean?

    • WOW

      So you must be the guy with the “HARD ON FOR IBIS” bumpersticker on your Hoopty… Cool Story Bro…

    • Congrats

      You get to pay $300 extra to hold a E-M5 with comfort.. GOOD JOB!

    Grandpa Harold’s favorite camera.

    It’s a good camera, no doubt, and gives many improvements over its predecessor. However, its vastly overpriced compared to both the GH2 and other cameras in its class. Just wait a year and allow the supply to surpass its demand. By then the price should settle to something reasonable.
