Re: Great camera at lower iso and good glass

Can fully recommend a GH2 for stills if you stick to ISO160 or 320, processs in LR4 and use the best and fastest m4/3 lenses you can afford.

As a starter the GH2 plus original 14-45 lens works well plus of course the 20mm and 25mm primes.

That's a bit restrictive, compared to other cameras at its level and depending on the purpose and use of your pictures, the GH2 can shoot up to 3200 ISO and produce good, usable files with a little pp in LR4. It is actually still quite close to the current best in M4/3, among which I would place the E-M5, the E-PL5, the G5 and the GH3. It doesn't produce the best JPEG output in the world however. Video is still up there with the best from a DSLR-type camera. It works well with both the smallest and largest of the M4/3 lens range.
