A variety of reasons. But where the rubber hits the road is image quality. If a camera doesn't take good pictures what's the point. The GF3 has the old 12MP sensor. The G3 has a newer 16MP sensor. It's more than just the the 4MP bump. It's the much better ISO performance. A GF3 is a decent daylight camera. At night or indoors everything falls apart. The G3 pulls away from it rapidly.
FYI the GF5K with standard lens is available from NooEgg here[newegg.com] for $340 w/FS. i have to agree with previous comments though. It's either GF5 with the PZ lens or it's a G3. GF5 with the standard lens doesn't make a lot of sense.
At this point in time I have a G3KK on the way from B&H ($299) and I have both a GF5XK and a GF5XW on order at Amazon ($440 w/tax). I need to choose one of them. The G3 body has the best IQ and features, but has added bulk in both the body and lens. Bulk is an issue for me. The GF5's (of which I prefer the white) are as close to a small PandS as you can get in M43, which is very nice. However they are 50% more expensive, and they may never arrive. What to do??
I was also on this deal with Groupon. This is the first time I order "Goods" from them, I am not sure how it works....
The problem I have is that, I still haven't gotten any confirmation email or shipment status.
Although, at the time of order, the screen showed "process", I got no status on Groupon Account nor in my email.
I wonder if anyone has gotten any status info yet.
