Re: GH2 or G5: Which to buy?

I picked up a GH2 in October to replace my stalwat GH1, and it is a fantastic camera. I ummed and arred over whether to go for the GH2 or G5, and what won it for me was the better grip, extensive manual controls, and similarity to my existing body. Touch focus has also been a revelation - with the GH1, I rarely moved the focal point from the centre point.

You should also be able to pick the GH2 up for cheaper than a G5, body-only anyway.
