The GH3 is water resistant, has a headphone jack, shoots .mov files, is it perfect

Unfortunately that one single thing kills all of the other advantages the GH3 brings to the table over the GH2. Moiré is unacceptable in a new camera, especially considering its predecessor was free of it!

And to the guy that whines about whiners, that was a whine that goes beyond whining: it's there to war those that don't know better to make an informed choice.
I still hope the GH3 will have fixed moiré by the time it ships, though.

I'm hoping too, Panasonic has done such a good job in listening to the users.

Listening and then not respecting the demands is even more ignorant than Canons sleeping beauty policy. We are getting slapped in the face and say thanks? Until now, there are more setbacks than improvements. What about the banding? They didn't get it fixed, judging from the footage available so far. Higher dynamic range? Where does this show?

Let's not support this. Panasonic deserves to have a shopkeeper here. I didn't expect the GH3 to have 4:2:2 or 10-bit, but I surely expected the expert crew to test the camera with the video community's wishes in mind. Imagine: They must have [i]seen[/i] the moire, the muddy image, and they said, okay, enough for them. It's not, Panasonic. Wake up.

This is what i'm screamin... If one person emailed them and said, "I like the GH2... But, ...sigh..... I just.... I just wish it had moire & aliasing, ya know?!" - i'd kiss his ass... I don't know why i'm seeing it in some videos, and not in others. That same clinically sterile 12-35x lens that everyone seems to be posting up may be the culprit... I didn't see it with the voigtlander lens test video, or on Genesis... (Maybe it was there, but i didn't see it like some of these videos..) - so, i'd like to say, "hey... Obviously there's work to be done on the firmware and that'll be fixed. Moire and aliasing should be the least of people's worries on the Gh3, since that was one of the main things that made the Gh2 stand out over the Mark 2." - then again, it's still a problem 4 years after the revolution... Lol

Cough, D800....cough, cough, aaaachoooo- A99..
