Digital SLR: Compare features & prices Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 review http://www.which.co.uk/technology/photography/reviews/digital-slr/panasonic-lumix-dmc-gf3/review/
The Panasonic Lumix GF3 is the ninth micro-four-thirds camera released by Panasonic and its smallest Lumix G-system camera to date. Unlike a digital SLR it's closer to a compact camera in size, but does it still deliver the goods when it comes to all-important picture quality?

Good backup for M4/3 owners
I had the older GF1 as a backup to my G2 "DSLR". But the GF1 is a bit bulky and heavy so I opted for the GF3 for size and weight. So far it's been ideal and I use it with the Olympus 28mm f8 "lenscap" lens in my pocket as a candid camera and with my Panasonic zooms as a spare on serious shoots. The GF1 (and new GX1) is really an alternative to a full SLR, the GF3 (and 5) are carry anywhere cameras with a decent sized sensor that happen to share lenses with the bigger models.
Have just bought this camera with a 14-42mm zoom lense but have ordered the 1.7f pancake lense to make the unit pocketable. Overall I am very pleased with the end results - in high light levels I would expect the sole use of the screen to change settings to be impossible - still then I would probably be using the excellent autofocus anyway! Excellent results but not a camera for purists.
