The GH2 sensor has never been advertised as 18mp (you could only ever get 16mp images out of it),

We are not talking about advertizement, we are talking about rumors about specifications - and the GH2 sensor is indeed specified as 18 mpix.

Ahem, if you read down a bit "Of course being rumours they may be making up the highest resolution claim themselves but at this point we can't know one way or the other."


6) Low quality EVF, maybe 200kpix unit from LF1, or sequential junk from G-series - high probability (have to fit it over screen somehow).

What's wrong with those EVFs? The quality is great even at 640x480, an 800x600 or 1024x768 version would be outstanding. (Unless you also think all sequential DLP projectors are junk too).

What is wrong? Low real resolution (400kpix or so) and crazy sh!t colors when panning. We are comparing with E-M5 and VF-4, which are simply so much better.

Actually it's a full colour resolution 800x600 EVF, which is technically the same as a full resolution colour 1.44M dot EVF (800x600x3). I think many 1.44M dot EVFs use sub pixel rendering which brings their perceptual resolution up somewhat, but not by a huge amount.

As for colour tearing it's no worse than popular DLP projectors.
