Re: I have 2 GH2s

I'm still using a GH-1 as I think it is good practice to buy alternate models in a product cycle (there being too little difference to justify upgrading each time there's an update). The E-M5 tempts me hugely but there's enough I like about the GH series to want to hang on to see what Panasonic counters it with. In particular I like the outsized 16:9 mode, user interface (great to be able to bracket without delving into menus), the larger EVF and the fold-out, reversible LCD.

IMO it would be good to see the GH-3 at least equalling the Oly in areas such as IQ - DR and noise especially - improved focusing and weather sealing, while retaining the GH advantages mentioned previously. Thereafter, the rumoured twin card slots, GPS and higher-resolution EVF would be major attractions for me. Finally, I know many people would prefer improved video performance and a global shutter, but I prefer stills so these factors wouldn't make a big difference to me.
