My G2 arrived today. I realize it's not a GH1 or GH2 and I have gone and bought myself a sub-standard camera with an aging processor but I guess i'll just have to cope with my poor decision making. The G2 is an early b-day present (my 50th) and my first impressions are...WOW. I absolutely LOVE the layout and the UI compared to the E-PL1. It suite me better. The size is what surprised me the most. It's a LOT smaller than I thought it would be. I was worried that it would be too big but my E-PL1 with the VF2 attached is not smaller in any significant way. Next up is the EVF vs the VF2. The Olympus F2 is considered to be the BEST EVF available for m43 and I think it deserves it's reputation. The EVF on the G2 tends to stutter a bit when zooming and lag a tiny bit where the VF2 sort of defocuses then refocuses...it appears that they are doing essentially the same thing but somehow its less noticeable on the E-PL1. I finally answered the question "do Panasonic lenses work better/faster on Panasonic bodies?". The answer is yes. The 20/1.7 focuses a lot faster on the G2. At first I would have said it was the same...then I switched back to the E-Pl1 and realized the difference was pretty big. Overall I am very impressed with the G2. I haven't had a chance to check IQ thoroughly but in the few snaps I've done it looks to be as good or better than the E-PL1. The G2 does a bit better job with WB and to my eye the images look a bit sharper but it was hardly an extensive test. Much has been written about how much better the Olympus JPEGs are than the Panasonic...they don't look THAT different. The Olympus colors appear to be bumped up a might and warmer but it's not like night and day. It's more like night and a little later that same night. My conclusion is that the G2 will be a good replacement for the E-PL1 and I'm glad I chose it instead of the E-PL2. Now, I'm off to find new homes for the E-PL1 and the VF2.
