I own and enjoy both cameras - and so have no particular "axe to grind", but the GH2 would always be my first choice for video. The moire patterns that the NEX-7 generates in HD video are horrendous in my experience, and enough to put me off using it for this purpose.

For stills, however, the NEX-7 has the edge. I'm still bowled over by the amount of detail that the NEX-7 can record - even with the kit lenses. The Panasonic falls down also in the quality of it's JPEG rendering - in fact its one of the poorest cameras I've come across in this respect - generally flat and lifeless with muddy skin-tones (not so important if you shoot RAW admittedly).

In short, both cameras have their strong points and weak points, and I'd be sorry to get rid of either of them.
