GH2 -> GH3? or G5?
Oct 26, 2012

I like my GH2, and primarily use it for stills-- video very rarely.  I like what I have read about the GH3 and have put one on pre-order.  I have the 20mm, 12-35, 14-45, 14-140, and 100-300.  I do mostly travel and some birding.

I'm reading some comments on this forum and other places on how good the G5 is.  Since I rarely do videos, and the GH3 has been delayed again, I'm wondering if the G5 is what I really wanted in the first place?

I'll be giving up some control points (Fn buttons), weather sealing, but gaining significant $$$.  I understand the G5 is in user hands, so I'm wondering, for a stills-only photographer, is the G5 an upgrade from my GH2?
