"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 (priced from $899) is a hybrid camera/camcorder that uses the Micro Four Thirds standards. It's the follow-up to the DMC-GH1, and it offers a host of new features, including a higher resolution sensor, faster autofocus and continuous shooting, a touchscreen support for Panasonic's 3D lens, and an improved Full HD movie mode."
The Panasonic GH1 is a fantastic but underrated camera, and I am glad to see that the GH2 improves on it. DCResource has a review and the camera does not disappoint. Have a read, and remember that the GH2, unlike the GH1, does not require you to purchase the stupidly expensive 14-140/4-5.8, which was the main reason for the GH1's poor reception. If you are keen on shooting videos and have an actual plan to do so (unlike yours truly who bought the GH1 and has yet to publish a single video), this is a camera that should be in your shortlist.
