Reason for selling everything for the GH2. This is a hobby for the most part. I lost focus in the actual photography. Going out on a trip was more of a chore (because of the amount of gear) than for enjoyment. With the GH2, I was able to bring the 100-300, 14-140, and 20 1.7 in one small bag I could focus on the photography and not worry about ALL of my gear. I would say the GH2 comes very close to the image quality of some of the DLRs I owned before. The video quality blows away the current video offerings of any DLR out there in my opinion. I might even try to put together a small video of the animals I photograph. I have no idea where to start! Overall, the GH2 is one of the best all around cameras out there!
