GH2 or G5: Which to buy?
Dec 28, 2012

I noticed that with the new G5 and GH3 out, that the GH2 and the G5 are both on sale right now for $499, which seems to be a terrific deal.

The G5 is obviously newer, with one presumes upgrades to the sensor and processing engine. I've read a lot of positive comments about the new G5 as "fixing" most of the drawbacks of the G3, which is what I have now and love, except for.... The GH2 has so much manual control and the multi-aspect sensor. Which should I buy and why? I am mostly a still shooter rather than video. Thanks.
