I would like to add another feature to your list. Maybe its not a new feature, rather the lack of one. If you plug a HDMI cable into the GH2 it turns off focus assist and the tele ex mode. I'm guessing they didn't get around to making it work before they shipped the GH2 because I can see no reason it shouldn't work. So I'm very much hoping they keep the tele ex mode and the focus assist working even if you plug in the HDMI to the GH3. I would appreciate it if you could pass on this request to your helpful source. I've sent an email to Panasonic but I'm sure in this case its who you know.
