I have tried the GH2 out for a few days now with the new 1.1 firmware. Although I like the camera a lot, it's not for me.
I ended up returning the GH2 and purchasing the superzoom FZ150 instead. I know Mark said that its video in marginal compared to even the P&S Hx9v.
2 main things I like about the FZ150 over the GH2:
1) Raw photo format for editing. This is a priority to purchasing this camera, since I already have a Sony XR550V for video.
2) Lens - 24x zoom (35mm equivalent - 25mm-600mm). This makes it act more like a traditional camcorder. Personally, I don't like changing lens on the GH2, even though its mirco 4/3 form factor is much small than traditional DSLR's. The less equipment I have to carry, the better.
I guess I'm settling the video quality for the superior photo quality.
Thanks everyone for your input.
P.S. Bill, I don't know your wife, but I can hear her telling me that this GH2 "mini me" is perfect for my need
