FWIW, I fully agree with Godfrey. I am undecided about the touch screen but welcome the ergonomic changes. I just don't think the G2 is enough of an 'upgrade' from my GH1 to justify a purchase, but for everyone who has not yet bought into the MFT system, this should be a dream camera and a worthy successor of the G1. I imagine a lot of people who had waited to switch will make the move now. And my hope is that the more people do get into the system, the higher the likelihood that it will still be around in a few years, even if the competitors come up with alternatives. If the GH1 successor follows the same strategy AND improves IQ/low ISO performance I will definitely be interested.
