G5 vs GH2 - Owners of both please tell me your opinions of them.
Nov 14, 2012

I had two GH2s which I sold and bought a new G5 which arrived today. (I am also getting a GH3.) The GH3 and G5 are going on safari with me and I wanted new cameras for the trip. I take lots of photos and was concerned about the older cameras coming up with problems before I took off.

Anyhow the G5 came today and my first impression is not wonderful. It feels much more plastic than my older GH2s did. And the menus are kind of cheesy though easy to follow. I miss some of the buttons on the GH2. Users of both cameras, please give me your opinion after using them for some time. I'm considering returning the G5 and getting a GH2 instead. What do you think?

Thanks.
