Panasonic GH2 Revisited at luminous Landscape

Share

There is a new article about the GH2 written by Luminous Landscape (Click here). I am going to post only a few key points of his review but I higly recomment to read the full text!

Video: “Let it be enough to say that with a fast lens (for shallow DOF) it is to my mind the best video capable DSLR type camera on the market.
Viewfinder: “In fact, I would say that it is an many instances preferable to the dismal (meant literally) and small optical viewfinders found on the smaller and usually inexpensive DSLRs.
Ergonomics: “It doesn’t have the elegance and stark simplicity of a Leica M9; in fact quite the opposite. But, given that it is a small form factor DSLR style camera with full features, not only for still photography but for video as well, it does a remarkable job of satisfy sometimes contradictory needs.
Reliability: “I’ve owned the GH1 for a couple of years and now the GH2. Both have been totally reliable, as have all the Panssonic lenses that I own, with the exception of the new 100-300mm. It failed just a few days after I got to Mexico, with a locked-closed aperture
Focusing: “Though the GH2 uses contrast detection AF, you wouldn’t know it from its speed.
Mirror Vibration: “There is no Mirror Vibration
Image Quality: “The difference between APS-C and MFT is de minimis.
Battery: “poor battery performance
The biggest issue?The biggest issue with the Panasonic GH2 is that a great many people that want to buy one, can’t, because these cameras seem to constantly be in short supply” (P.S.: Amazon US (Click here) says “Usually ships in 1 to 2 months”)

Do you agree with the LL analysis?

And you can check if the GH2 is in Stock by visiting the direct product pages at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.
