I know that DP Review had several cameras in queue for review before the GH2 but atd least this shows they are working on it. Will look forward to their final review when it comes out.

Like many others I think that for its sensor size the GH2 looks really good, and was glad to see some early RAW examples. Base noise is a little high but it seems workable across the range up to 3200 (depending on each photographers individual criteria) and 6400 may be suitable for some "emergency documentation" purposes. 12,800 seems mostly unusable but then in an extreme situation may get an important critical shot if viewed at reasonable sizes and not pixel peeped. Remembering of course that even in imperfect image can tell an important story.

Yes, when I have the money, the GH2 will be on my shopping list. It is the step up from the GH1 I was hoping for.

These cameras today are sooo much better then the digital cameras of just 8 years ago it is amazing when I got my first Olympus 2mpx UZI. And a world above the first 35mm film cameras I shot with 40+ years ago. Perspective is always relative, and nothing here that makes me shy away from the GH2. It will most likely meet my needs unless DP Review finds a serious Achilles Heel.
