My observation - Panasonic GH2 video vs. Nikon V1

I'm not starting some sort of childish flame war like mine is better than yours. This is based on my on personal observations...

The GH2 makes better videos overall (my opinion), but the V1 does a very good job too. BUT the biggest thing I noticed is the differences in the stabilized lenses and how much camera movement is noticed during video recording. My personal opinion (having used both cameras) is that the Nikon 30-110 VR does a much better job stopping visible camera shake/movement during video recording than the Panasonic 14-140.

Here are two examples where I had the lens zoomed out pretty far.

The Panasonic GH2 with 14-140mm:

The V1 with 30-110mm:
