I think video is the key. If you have any ambitions to produce good quality video, it has to be the GH2 because of the manual controls available in video. Being able to set the shutter speed is very important for professional looking video, because you want it to match the frame-rate you are using. Most CSC/DSLRs do not allow this. The various hacks designed for the GH1 and GH2 enable you to experiment with some very high quality video. A flip-our LCD screen is also almost essential for video. However for family style-videos, where you will not be using a tripod much but grabbing shots when you can, a dedicated video camera is abetter choice anyway.
