I Just Bought A Used Panasonic GH2 On eBay Tonight

I vacillated between a Sony NEX-5n and the GH2. Back and forth. Which one? In the end, I decided on the Panasonic because I have a good assortment of lenses that I use on my Olympus PEN E-PL1 and I will be able to use them on the GH2. On the other hand, if I had purchased the Sony NEX, I would have to buy lenses and the number of lenses that fit are fewer and none that open up like the Panasonic 20mm F1.7.

Now I'm looking for help in what the recommended settings should be. I do a lot of low light shooting and also videos, often in low light too.

Thanks for any help in getting the camera set up properly.
