The new DMC-GF3 is 16.7 percent lower and 16.2 per cent lighter than its predecessor, the DMC-GF2, which was 19 percent smaller and lighter than the seven per cent of predecessor DMC-G1. GF3 size and weight reduction is due to the elimination of the optical viewfinder and mirror box, which means that there is no viewfinder.
