Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 photos

Equipped with a pancake prime lens, the GF3 finally achieves point-and-shoot-like size, comparable to the Sony Alpha NEX series. With the 14-42mm kit lens or a nonpancake prime, though, it loses its pocketability.

Though it has a virtual mode dial, there's a physical button/dial control for exposure compensation, white balance, drive mode and focus area. The GH3 updates to iA+ mode (compared to the GH2's iA) which adds brightness and color adjustments to auto.

With the 14-42mm kit lens, the GH3, like most of its competitors, isn't that compact.
