Re: Returning FZ100 - so G2 or GH1?

My recollection is that the main update of the G2 over the G1 is inclusion of video and the touch screen. The GH1 has a better sensor with more dynamic range and better high ISO performance. Although a nice feature, I'm sure, the touch screen is not much of a factor to me, since I primarily use the EVF. Were I buying today, I'd get the G1+14-45 over the G2 if price was my main consideration and video didn't matter to me, or the GH1 over the G2 if prices were roughly equal, since it's a better camera.

All these cameras can use your legacy lenses. The focus assist on the G1 is a bit more fiddly (requires a two-button press instead of a wheel click), but it's perfectly usable.
