GH2 is equal to G5 for stills and better for video. Only no 1080p60 on gh2 but 720p60 is great on gh2 and due to hack much better then the 1080p60 of the G5.

Main plus for gh2 is 24p, the hack and full manual movie mode.

Another plus for gh2 stills is the multi aspect sensor!

OMD has better still dynamic range then gh2 but practically that really depends on your subjects-shooting and needed dynamic range. OMD isn´t in the same ballpark as GH2 for serious video.

GH3 will beat all (most probably lol)

GH2 is a superb cam (I own one)!

G5 has some advantages with slightly better noise control (even in raw), quieter mechanical shutter, noiseless electronic shutter, faster burst rate, better focusing and tracking, lighter and smaller body (marginally), better screen.

Basically an incremental upgrade on most parts of the camera, but you lose video functions and some buttons.
