    Does anyone know how to download an English interface onto a
    GF2 with a Japanese only interface?

    You can't. Panasonic is particularly devious this way for the JDM-only warranteed product. (Otherwise, everyone would buy it since the price is significantly lower)

    That said, the info is in there - my white GF1 is Japanese only, and I got English through the pTool hack. There MIGHT be some service menu an exceptionally skilled dealer/repair center could go in and activate, but good luck finding one.

    I wonder if a firmware update would do it...

    ...if you downloaded the firmware from say the US site and loaded it as per instructions.

    They didn't used to be. I have a Panasonic camcorder I bought grey market about 5 years ago and although it came in Japanese by default you could reset the language. The printing on the outside for the buttons is in Japanese which is kind of cool actually.
