G3 vs. GH2

Can anybody summarize the differences really quickly? I had my G3 stolen from my office recently and am replacing. Insurance is covering the cost, so the question is- is it worth spending a little out of pocket to upgrade to the GH2?

Thanks,

Brian

Re: G3 vs. GH2

If you can wait a while, see what the rumoured GH-3 and G5 look like.

At the moment the GH-2 is at a bargain price, well it is in the UK, so that might be a good bet. Its probably the best camera period for taking movies and as good as any DSLR for stills. Check out the reviews of the G3 and GH-2 to see the differences. G3 smaller, no eye sensor, and no multi aspect sensor but then it was a lot cheaper than the GH-2 but took just as good a picture. Bare in mind that they are both due for replacement.

Any idea when the new models come out? I'm going on vacation in about three weeks, so I can't wait too long.

Thanks for the feedback.

I heard towards the end of the year [Fall], but I could be wrong, check out Photo Rumours/Panasonic. If you already have some Panny lenses get another G3 or GH2 body, used if possible.
