So much more interested in the Black Magic Pocket camera. Yes, it's a completely different beast (video recording camera with no stills capability) and uses a smaller sensor than m43, but it fills a niche that Panasonic has neglected (small video camera with RAW video recording). GH3 is too large and bulky for me (as large as APS-C DSLRs) and doesn't record video RAW.
As a consumer stills camera, the GF6 looks to be adequate but in no way exciting. Same sensor as the G5/GX1 which is 1 generation behind the E-M5 and E-PL5, still no 1080p60 (and no mention of 1080p24, even smartphones can do 1080p these days!) and no flash bracket. Granted, this is not meant to be an enthusiast camera, but Panasonic doesn't realize that their competitors haven't been standing still these past 2 years. They're going to have to push much harder to compete against NEX and Fuji-X series, or even their old stable mate, Olympus.
