This looks like a nice camera... that may feature the highest still-image quality of any Pansonic micro four-thirds camera. In addition to the many previews, here's a completed full review:

I was thinking about picking up a leftover GH1 body for $399 and giving my G1 to a niece. I'm not so sure now. $599 for G3 body only and $699 for body and 14-42mm kit lens.

I wonder what it will feel like with the 14-140mm lens on the front and will the G3 plus the 14-140mm be better than the GH2 pairing.
What are the GH2 users thoughts on this??

Biggest difference GH2 / G3 is video 50/60p contra 50/60i

I have a G3 on preorder from Panasonic Direct. $524 with 14-42mm lens through the employee discount program. I'll give the lens and my G1 to my niece. I already have the 14-45mm lens, which is a bit better.

Also, deadshot, DonalDuc is right. The primary functional difference between the G3 and GH2 is the frame rate during video capture. Still image quality seems just a bit better with the G3. In terms of size and lens balance, the G3 really isn't that much smaller. It's the matter of the smaller grip. I'll let everyone know about that when I actually get my hands on it.
