Panasonic Lumix GH2 review by DPReview

DPReview just finished its full in-depth review on Lumix GH2, Panasonic’s already popular ‘video optimized’ micro four-third camera.  With impressive overall score: 79% , just one point below the Nikon D7000 but equal with Canon 60D , makes this camera is worth to consider . Especially if you’re looking for great ‘video’ camera:

The GH2 is easily the best video-equipped stills camera that we’ve ever used. The depth of its feature set is impressive, but more importantly, it creates great looking video

DPReview conclusion:

In summary, we really like the GH2. It offers a highly competitive specification, including (crucially) greatly improved AF compared to previous G-series cameras, and in most respects it is at least a match for the best of its DSLR competitors when it comes to still imaging. It wouldn’t be our first choice for shooting fast action, and we wish that Panasonic’s JPEG color and tone curve more closely resembled that used by certain other manufacturers (we’re thinking specifically of Olympus)) but these are relatively minor grumbles. As far as video is concerned of course, for the time being the GH2 is in a class of its own.
