EOSHD is a 100% pro Panny / CANON bashing site - I wouldn't believe anything written on the EOSHD site.
I do find the GH2 fanbois interesting. Respected filmaker (and long time Panasonic user) Phill Bloom, when previewing the 60D on his blog, wrote that he preferred the 60D over the GH2 for film making (only one person's opinion, sure), however, Phill had to pull the entire page from his site after some rather rabid attacks from some EOSHD/GH2 fanbois. Phill still regularly answers the EOSHD/GH2 fanbois on his blog "we don't do EOSHD/GH2 fanbois on this site". Get a grip, cameras are only tools.
For proper Panny vs CANON comparisons, refer to any other site other than the EOSHD site. There are plenty of other good comparos.
I can guarantee all readers of this site that my mates GH2 is a little sharper to my 60D in good light, but compared to the 60D is relatively noisy in moderately low light (eg iso 1600) and the GH2 is not useable (for me) at iso 6400.
Once some post processing is applied, eg image stabilizing by MERCALLI plugin or WARPSTABILIZER in Adobe AE, and sharpness / detail differences between the cameras completely disappears. In fact, the heavier noise reduction needed for the GH2 @ eg iso 1600 and above, makes the final GH2 footage less detailed than the 60D @ these same isos.
Cruze over to CLOUDYNIGHTS Astro forums - camera brand ? these guys couldn't care less - low light performance is all that counts.
CLOUDYNIGHTS forums/DSLR & Digital Camera Astro Imaging & Processing thread: http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/postlist.php/Cat/0/Board/DSLR
notice that the DSLRs used are nearly 100% CANON, and that GH2s are nowhere to be seen ? 'nuf said !
I have seen some spectacularly fantastic deep space astro images taken with the 60D. I have taken a few my self I am proud of (for my astro noobie skill level) with my 60D.
Apart from low light noise and grain size, glass is all important - I have the largest range of glass to choose from, and some of my lenses are the best in class.
My video to stills mix is 50/50, so stills are important to me - as a stills camera, the 60D wins hands down over the GH2 - there is no comparison. A have also filmed some out door concerts @ night, and the 60D performed superbly.
This time lapse shot on a 5D2 & 5D3 could not have been made with the GH2

The CANON's have also been widely used for movie making - over 30 feature presentations produced on the CANON DSLRs, some listed here: http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/open-dv-discussion/504406-feature-films-shot-dslr.html
A CANON 7D was used for the film 'LIKE CRAZY' - won Sundance, and globally released - I have the bluray. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Like_Crazy
It won the Grand Jury Prize @ Sundance.
“Overall, this a textbook for DSLR shooting and essential viewing to anyone who plans to shoot this way.” http://makingthemovie.info/2012/03/dvd-review-like-crazy.html
the 7D looks amazing – just shows what expensive glass can do.
The CANONs are also widely used for music videos - great in low light environments.
Some Interesting comments from GH2 owners:
“Gotta love the GH2's 8-bit compression gradient-banding artifacts visible at 1:42 (not)! My fault for shooting against a flat, unevenly-lit background. Live & learn”
“I had always problems with color banding with my GH2. For this reason I tried the hack. I am very disappointed that the color banding problem is still alive. I cannot use my GH2 for professional work. No way...The colour banding in blue clear skies is awful. The hack was my last chance to keep this camera... The higher bitrate do not change this behaviour. Perhaps it is not possible to solve this issue. Probably the 8 Bit is the problem.
I do like the GH2 - it has more detail in good light. However, most of what I shoot is not in good light, or, I want to stop down to F11 and beyond to film race cars on local hills roads yesterday, then the isos will be higher and the 60D is better for me.
I also have a passion for still shots, and the 60D wins hands down.
