Got a bit of good news recently. Looks like my job is safe for at least another budget cycle, I'm being honored with an award for creative teaching and my 50th is a little over a week. I decided I want to give myself a little b-day present. I want to add to my camera stable. I have an E-PL1, and Panasonic LX3 and ZS3 (fun little carry alongs). I had been thinking about picking up an E-PL2 but practically speaking I don't see that much difference than what I have with the E-PL1. I really enjoy using my E-PL1, about my only gripe is the UI and the buttons are pretty clunky and can be frustrating (but not as problematic as no camera at all). I also have long thought the Panasonic GF-1 looked good but I'm not too excited about the GF-2 and the GF-1 seems to be getting more expensive rather than less now that it is discontinued. Also, I use a VF2 on my E-PL1 and realize that I need to use and EVF and I don't care for the available EVF for the GF-1/GF-2. After a few suggestions by some folks on this board (and SC) I have been looking at a Panasonic G2 (the GH1 and GH2 are out of my price range). The G2 Looks like it would be a very nice handling camera and I found a brand new one on FM that can be had at a very appealing price. I do have some concerns about image quality however. Many of the samples I've seen are less than stellar although I am not prone to pixel peeping so I am not sure I would notice in real life. I like the swivel LCD, the fact that it has what is supposed to be a nice EVF built in and all my lenses are Panasonic so I expect they will work a bit better on the G2 than my E-PL1. It's down to the E-PL2 and the G2. The E-PL2 is a case of something I am familiar with but I also am feeling it's not much of an upgrade from what I have already. In fact if the samples I have seen are accurate I'd say the E-PL1 has ever so slightly better image quality. The E-PL2 does have faster shutter, faster AF and a slightly better control layoit with the scroll wheel. The G2 however appears to have a MUCH better control layout, better UI and has a few niceties such as faster shutter and orientation sensor. Are there G2 owners out there that could let me know what they think of their cameras?
