Re: GH2 vs Sony Alpha 55

This was my experience too, the raw files actually offered very little detail improvement over the jpg, which surprised me. As for the thought of the 400g, like you it was hard to get my head around such a combo.

I have them both, 10fps on the sony is very useful to me, I have more lens choices for it too (like a 50mm f1.4) and that's why I kept it. Still, good lenses for it are big and expensive, either sony or zeiss, it looks ridiculous with the 400mm G. I rarely shoot video and for stills, the GH2 definitely beats the A55 in detail. At firs I thought it was me, but the studio comparison here confirmed it, the A55 applies detail destroying noise reduction even to RAW files and there's no way to turn it off. Go to the studio scene comparison in RAW in the review and drag it to anywhere you want (good areas are the grandma's face and the statue of david's face as well as the dime). At ISO 800 its quite noticeable, theres much more detail in the GH2 files, and a lot of blurring in the A55s. Even at ISO 3200 theres more detail with the GH2 and by the time you get rid of the noise AND sharpen the A55 file itll look much worse than the noise reduced GH2 file. Ive had the GH2 since xmas and its proven once and again to kick my APS Cs ass thoroughly.
Go out and shoot something, NOW!
