The GH2 sensor has never been advertised as 18mp (you could only ever get 16mp images out of it),

We are not talking about advertizement, we are talking about rumors about specifications - and the GH2 sensor is indeed specified as 18 mpix.

6) Low quality EVF, maybe 200kpix unit from LF1, or sequential junk from G-series - high probability (have to fit it over screen somehow).

What's wrong with those EVFs? The quality is great even at 640x480, an 800x600 or 1024x768 version would be outstanding. (Unless you also think all sequential DLP projectors are junk too).

What is wrong? Low real resolution (400kpix or so) and crazy sh!t colors when panning. We are comparing with E-M5 and VF-4, which are simply so much better.

I personally much prefer the GH2s EVF to the EM5 EVF. I just find it bigger, brigter and clearer. Maybe it's cos I don't go wizzing my camera from left to right all the time, but even shooting sports I've never had any issues.

I agree.  Also the GH3's EVF is similar to the EM5's.  It's just let down by the optic in front of it.
