Panny today released the third edition of their meat-and-potatoes ยต4/3 camera, the G3. They've reduced bulk by 25% and weight by 9% (11.8 oz, body only); added a higher resolution sensor and touchscreen; and retained the flippy display and built-in EVF (nearly 1.5M-dot EVF). Focus is said to be quite fast for a CDAF camera.

I'm glad to see that despite keeping the mini-slr design, they wacked so much bulk from the earlier Gs. Will be watching to see whether Oly adopts this sensor for their next generation.

I'm interested in this camera. We have a GF1 and a G1 in the house, and they are terrific, but better high-ISO image quality would be welcome for the kind of work that I do. And the add-on EVF on the GF1 is pretty bad. The G3 looks to be smaller than my GF1, too. That would make a nice pair for travel and personal work. Looking forward to it.
