Our friend Iker Morán just posted the new Panasonic G2 preview on Quesabesde (google english translation). They hade a pre-production model so things can change a little bit. They also have some image samples available for download and videos.

- The 14-42 mm lens shows an excellent autofocus performance when recording video sequences

P.S.: No preorders are available on Amazon or BHphoto
