In case you haven't seen it, Phil's full review of the 5100 is up. He rates it 76% overall -- 3% below the GH2. As we might have guessed, the 5100's biggest advantage is low light shooting. The GH2 pulls way ahead in the areas of ergonomics and video recording. Otherwise there isn't much to separate them ... according to the review.

One additional point in his review.. he felt that the ergonomics and button placement is really bad on the Nikon 5100..

"We do have some concerns though, mostly as regards the arrangement of the D5100's second-tier controls. Some of the control points appear to have been positioned almost at random and, with the exception of the articulated LCD screen, we're not convinced that the operational and ergonomic changes that Nikon has made compared to the D3100 add any value to the camera. In fact, the contrary might even be true, especially as regards the redesigned live view switch"
