Yes but I was surprised to see GH1 looked sharper with the SAME lens under some conditions, than the GF1, in the video footage linked to (the 14-45)

OK, understood, but how does that translate into differences in the actual footage shot ? Quality?

The GH1 has a multi-aspect sensor, so when shooting video (of any resolution) has more usable sensor area than a G1 or G2.

There's a video on that page that should help you. I'd say the GH1 is a bit sharper at 720p than the GF1. Plus remember it'll be a bit wider, as already stated, and that the GF1 only records mono sound.

Sharpness depends on the lens used
