    While there's no doubt that the GH2 is amazing, if you are going by pictures online, you'll quickly realize that it doesn't matter which camera you have. Look at these flickr groups for:

    Canon D60 (blast from the past!) Flickr: Canon D60

    Looks very sharp and colorful, but I wonder if it was shot raw first? Some reviewers say the GH2 has mediocre jpegs (though class leading video). I like PENS because the jpegs right out the camera look great. Like today I was in a Ritz camera store looking at the new E-PL3. I popped my memory card into it and took this shot with the 14-42 kit lens right through the store window. I worry, though, that the low profit digital camera division of Olympus might be sold off and the brand could be lost...especially now with the potentially scandalous legal troubles facing the company.

    JPEG's don't really concern me- I always shoot RAW, then process with LR3.5 and perhaps NIK plug-ins like Silver EFX or Color EFX.

    I find that many many jpegs need some post-processing, too, regardless of the camera. At a minimum, sharpening needs to reflect the final use (print vs. display) and size of the image, so I don't want to bake the final sharpening into my out-of-camera file. Shooting raw just gives me so much more control and flexibility it's worth the little bit of extra work. Especially since LR make the entire process so easy it's no harder to work with raw than with jpegs.
