The only areas where I can honestly say the GH-2 holds me back on occasion are:

(1) continuous shooting both in terms of AF and clearing the buffer

(2) white balance and JPEG quality which lags behind the competition (it would be nice to feel that I don't always need to shoot raw)

I'd always be up for better IQ, in particular dynamic range where the Olympus really seems to perform very well indeed. Don't have a problem with the noise levels from the GH-2 at higher ISOs, but a really clean ISO100 would be lovely.

Other than that, there's an awful lot to like about the GH-2, and personally the handling and grip work better for me than the OM-D. Ditto the menu system.

That said, I prefer the OM-D build quality and am sure Panasonic will have to up their game in this area - they know how to do it with their other cameras eg GF-1, GX-1. The GH-2 feels, by comparison, a little disappointing - but haven't experienced any issues in practice (in over a year).
