I agree: Prefer swiveling screen

And I love my swiveling screen MUCH more than the tilting screen on the Oly, if only to protect the screen from scratches as you can turn the screen towards the body with GH2.

I love the swiveling screen on my GH2. It it so much more versatile. Plus, as you mentioned, you can turn the screen towards the body to protect the screen from scratches. I don't want to carry my camera over my shoulder, with the screen getting scratched by the rivets on my jeans as I walk.

At least Nikon DSLRs come with plastic (and replaceable) screen shields. Yes, I know you can buy a screen protector for the OM-D, but you shouldn't have to.
