    Now to convince my GF that she can have her own GH2, so I get more access to mine. :smile:

    Here in Sweden you can now buy the GF3 body only (new) for SEK 990 (incl. VAT). That's $146 and then you'll have to bear in mind that the Swedish prices are normally quite a bit higher than the US.

    :2thumbs: GF is the proud owner of a new GH2. Might see her around these parts.

    The price for the GH2 is mightily tempting...

    GH2 deal is quite insane. Now only if the 12-35 were half off =)

    Well. Damn. This puts a real crimp in the resale value of my GH2 ... the GH3 upgrade is going to have to be pushed back a bit!

    Wow, that GH2 deal is indeed very tempting. Anyone have any insight on how much of an upgrade that would be relative to my PL2, in terms of IQ?

    It is a significant step from the old 12mp, particularly in DR. GH2 and G5 are essentially the same camera.

    Shows the m4/3 cameras don't hold their value nearly as well as the Canikon DSLR's.

    But that's not anything new. This became apparent when cameras were being released in rapid succession while maintaining the same sensors.

    the bigger question is..

    is the OMD worth more than 2x the price of gh2 (body+ 14-42 lens)

    That sounds like a great deal! Funds are tight for me since all the damage from the hurricane, but I'm really considering purchasing this GH2 and putting this on a credit card I won't have to pay off for 12months.

    Can someone tell me if this is the same size sensor as the GH1, witch utilizes the whole image circle, or is it just the same size 16mp sensor as in the G5 camera ?


    Although I have not stopped shooting, I have been not paying attention to internet and all things ยต4/3 for the past 5 or 6 months, so sorry if it seems like a dumb question.

    Has a stills camera, the 5-axis IBIS makes it the only camera of it's kind on the market.

    GH2 sold out--I wouldn't worry about the plummeting value of your GH2.

    Darn, I just bought the GH2 but I'm having buyers remorse right now.... do you think I could resell it, for what I paid for it if I do not open it, or would there probably be a better deal by the time I receive it.?

    NO, It's not sold out yet. I just bought one 15 minutes before my last post, but looking now I still see them available.
