Panasonic has the smaller size advantage, and will likely have the video advantage, not to mention on-par IQ if what they say comes true. I still think the GH2 will come out as a kit, hopefully with a new lens, priced at a minimum around $1700 like the E-5 that just came out.

That better be one heck of a lens for a $1700 kit price. You can get a Pentax K-7 + 16-50mm f/2.8 weather sealed lens for $1700....and that camera is built so tough you could drop it in a pile of snow, leave it there for a few hours, pull it back out and it will still work fine. If the GH2 inherits the GH1 body then there's no way it can be that expensive. Slapping a flagship price on a non weather sealed plastic camera doesn't make it a flagship level product no matter how good the internals are.
