Summary: This is a great all in one still image/video package. It does feel plastic-y and isn't as rugged or solid as a DSLR but at the same time, it's very light and compact. It feels like a point and shoot camera, but with much more manual controls. Which is a good thing, making it ultra portable. In my opinion, the GH 2 is better than the newer GH 3 in terms of what I mainly use it for: video.
Summary: This is the easiest camera to operate. My photographs are good every single time. This camera is opening up photography for me in brand new ways because it is so intuitive simple and satisfying to use.
Summary: I really wanted to get a DSLR to allow for taking pictures of our new baby. I also really wanted to have a good video camera for capturing living moments. This camera filled the void for both. It's not a point and shoot camera. I had some issues with blur until I started to learn about adjusting the film speed/exposure. It's definitely a learning curve. The only real complaint is that the manual zoom makes quite a bit of noise if you adjust it while filming movies.
Summary: I got this camera as a first dslr camera. I was going to get the Canon t4i or t3i, until i found the gh2. I read up on it and decided to get it. i was surprised how many people have not heard about the GH2. When i first started to use it, it was very confusing and the video quality wasn't that good (because i didn't know how to use it). after a little while I learned how to get the best quality out of it. I also heard about the Hack for it.
Summary: This camera is awesome.... Very easy to figure out with out reading the manual. Once you apply patches to this camera the video quality is just astounding. I also have a Nikon D600 and had several different Canon DSLR's. This camera blows the other cameras out of the water, the only area where the Nikon D600 is better is depth of field and dynamic range. I am referencing video quality not still imaging.
