For me, this will be my in-between camera. At the moment the GH2 is my in-between camera. I'll be using it mostly on family trips when I don't want to lug my D700 and when my LX5 isn't good enough.

If you are looking for a reason to spend money on new toys because you want to play than be true about it. Otherwise there is no reason in owning an "in-between" camera between a DSLR and compact. Its just one more disposable digital thing in a household full of it.

Will it help you - or anyone - to improve photographically? I have my doubts...

+1, it's just people addicted to buying the newest camera.. to be sure it will be sold within the next 12 months for the next camera out.

You may need both models, just in case it's bright outside, outherwise, stick with the non VF model for indoor shots. Also think about if one of them breaks whilst on holiday, probably best to get a couple of each just in case, you never know when you need a back-up and no sense in wasting a whole trip.
