The G5 is a step down from the GH2 IMO



Care to explain?

In my opinion the G5 is nicer to hold, LCD is much better, AF works faster, more creative controls (if you care about that sort of thing), menu's are a bit better, picture quality is a bit better, JPEGs are noticeably better, function lever is nice addition, Touch AF is also nice for some people.

The GH2 has a mic-in and manual controlls during video shooting. It also has more external controls.

So the GH2 is still a better choice for video, but as a picture-taking device the G5 is IMO the better camera.
