i don't really like that narrow dof hdslr look. it has a place in demo stuff, but it doesn't really belong in 99% of shots in narrative stuff. feel like people who call it the "film look" have never actually seen a film.

low light performance is useful, since at the tooling around stage i will be working with available light, but when a modern camera is working at 1080p rather than 18MP or whatever, i assume what is possible in low light is much more a function of the lens rather than the camera.

the flexibility of the 14-140 (and the resale value for when i figure out what i actually want to do with the camera) is relevant to my interests, so if I was going to pay extra for the 60D or the GH2, I think i will get the GH2.

i am not buying until i am in the u.s. in february. i have time to get my hands on a couple to try out. will maybe go to tottenham court road after xmas with a memory card and try the GH2 and to 550D.

thank you all for your comments.
