Do you use the G3?! I own a GF2 and a EPL1 (Oly) and the Samyang 7.5 that
I'm thinking hard, if I'm to give up all APSC Canon system and keep only
fullframe and a mirrorless.
I'm waiting for the GH3 to see what it takes, how it does compare with Nex7
etc. and then I'll make up my mind. I'm very interested about video
