micro 4-3rds decision

Based on a hint from my wife, I've made the call and will keep the GH1 over the G2.  She has indicated that learning more about photography would be fun, and having cameras with near-identical controls would therefore be more valuable than cameras with near-identical sensors.  That plus a bit more versatility in video - and the fact that the GH1 is in hand but G2 was still at the warehouse (though about to ship, I was told).
So our lineup is set for now.  I even have close-up lenses to stop me from buying a macro lens, but now up pops a forum post about macro lens + slide holder = great slide copier.  Drat, that sure would be handy, and much faster than my scanner...
