    I just bought a GH3, which I'm absolutely thrilled with.

    So I now have a GH3, a GH3 (correction, GH2), and a G3 that is primarily my wife's but available to me as a second body / backup pretty much when I need it.

    The only real reason I can think of to keep the GH2 is the multi-aspect sensor, for that extra width with wide angles by shooting in 16:9 aspect ratio. But I'd be interested in reading anyone else's thoughts.

    If you are going to mainly use 1 camera then I suggest you sell the GH2 since the resell price is pretty good at moment.

    I usually shoot with 2 bodies at the same time for most shoots, I would keep it.

    But if a smaller form factor is needed as a backup body, like the upcoming GX7, I might sell it now.

    Good luck!

    That's kind of what I'm thinking, but I wouldn't buy at GX (if at all), until the price drops (like the GH3 did).

    I bought and sold all these:

    E-M5, G5, GX1, E-PL5

    I bought and kept these:

    GH1, GH2

    I LOVE the GHx series and their lovely control levers and wheels.

    IMHO, the biggest attraction to the GH series, is what you mentioned in the last line. :thumbup:

    Sell the GH2, the prices they're going for are terrific. When I sold mine back in April, it was a rare case where I came out ahead in the transaction.

    I bought the GH2 14-140 kit new in Summer 2011 for $1200 (panasonic eps pricing), and sold the body alone for $820 - ebay costs and what I value the 14-140 lens portion to be. It was really a great deal for me to sell the two year old camera body!

    Sorry, fat-fingered the keyboard. I've corrected the original post.
