However, for my money 24MP is going too far

I may take this back--I've been wishing Panasonic u4/3 cameras would have Sony's EXMOR technology. Well, the 24MP Sony APS-C chip has about the same pixel density as the GH2 (actually a bit less), so it's really a lower noise GH2 (sensor-wise). That assumes the light sensing area of the Sony chip has not been significantly reduced by the added on-chip circuitry for A/D and column parallel NR. I guess I'll have to wait for the RAW images to see how it compares to the GH2...

Cheers, Keith
