Glad I bought the GH2

1 hr. versus 4 hours

I bought the E-M5 but also kept the GH2. It took me 1 hour to set up the GH2 and 4 hours to set up the O-M5. And that's with experience with both Pany and Oly UI (LX5, E520, E620).

I bought the E-M5 primarily for the IBIS for my reg43 50mm, reg43 14-54II, reg43 70-300 and five old nikkor primes. Secondarily for the grip to aid in holding, especially in vertical orientation.

I find the buttons to be more useful on the GH2, while with the E-M5 I likely rely on the Super Control Panel because even with the buttons programed the way I want them on the EM5, they remain unlabeled and difficult for me to remember which is for which!
