i hope with the bmcc we don´t need the gh3/7d/60d/5d/d700/d800/a77/a99 anymore for video.

You will still need the GH3/A99 by my reckoning. And D800 takes great stills too.

It would be amazing if the GH3 has an 80Mbit Intra-frame codec. If not, then at least I hope it has clean, recordable 4:2:2 24p out the HDMI port to use with an external recorder. If it can do eithe

Yes Micro Four Thirds mount, 110% sure. Otherwise it would not be a GH3. It would be separate line of products altogether. The lenses are important - more margin on those, and the camera body helps shift them. No body, no lens sales.

As a long-time GH1 & GH2 owner & supporter ...

... I'm looking forward to the new "GH3" or whatever Panasonic decides to call it. My m43 lenses want a new body!

However, as a US resident, I'm concerned about Panasonic's US organization actually making the new camera available for sale to US customers via authorized US dealers any time soon after the announcement.

The GH2 was announced at Photokina in mid-Sept. 2010 and only became available (in extremely small quantities) from authorized Panasonic U.S. dealers in mid-Dec. 2010. It was still very hard to buy in he U.S. for a couple of months after that, through early 2011!

It was available in Japan in late Oct. 2010, and in a few European countries by mid-Nov. 2010.

So, availability varied quite a lot depending on location. It was a similar situation with the GH1 starting in mid-2009.

It's impossible to guess how Panasonic will distribute the new "GH3". It's almost certain it will be announced at Photokina next month, but when it will become available to customers in each country is a complete unknown.

Based on past experience, Panasonic might not make the new camera available in the U.S. until after it's available elsewhere for weeks or months, but that's just a guess. These things are unpredictable, so the "GH3" might be available in the US the same week it's announced, or not.

I especially hope the "GH3" will feature at least semi-nice looking 1080p60 as a compliment to my new Blackmagic Cinema Camera, which I expect to receive "any day now". Cheers.
