Are you guys run by Canon? what is this 97 vs 49 points bullshit. First off all, you must consider stills and video separately. In terms of video shoot capabilities, Gh3 is way ahead of canon 6d/5d or whatever D that is - as of today..However, with magic lantern, things are looking great for canon as well..educate your readers, dont feed nonsense to boost sales..

I don't understand why you put that Canon 6D doesn't jave Image stabilization, and GH3 has one in the lens?? If you buy canon IS lens, you have image stabilization on 6D as well. Or am I reading the comparison wrong? Am I missing some difference in technology of Canon lenses with IS and Panasonic IS system?
