    When lenses are £3,000 each or £20k for a set, the cost of lenses is a significant factor, but not for the GH2.

    I can use my old film Nikon mount lenses on the GH2, and my newest Nikon body is the FM...

    ¿do Nikon have anything in the same league as the 20mm f1.7?

    ¿have you seen the Nikon 1 sample video on the Jacobs web site?

    As mentioned above, I'm not likely to leave m4/3 (it's an ideal system for motor sports among other things), and I'm even getting some 4/3 gear for when I need/feel for an optical viewfinder. So far, I have a couple of excellent 4/3 lenses and one body, and another body and a lens more is hopefully very close. Unfortunately, my E-5 fund disappeared into an F6 the other day, but who knows what the future brings...
    Well,

    I am pretty close to sell my E5 with SHG glass, so that seems to be the future for me.

    Too much disappointment Olympus to let the E system die and on the other side not even follow up appropriately with the m43 system, Panasonic currently already light years ahead.

    Seems for me that I have had enough of Olympus marketing

    Nobody is right or wrong here. For instance, I could care less if any of these camera even had a video function. So, to me comparing the video features is meaningless.

    That just leads me back to the point I made before. Technically, you could say the GH2 is a more complete camera but that doesn't mean it is the right solution for everyone.
