Listed below are some of the rivals of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2.

Canon EOS 60D

Canon EOS 60D Review thumbnail

The EOS 60D is a new kind of DSLR camera from Canon, blending features from the cheaper 550D / / Rebel T2i and the more expensive 7D to exactly occupy the middle ground between the two. Aimed at the well-heeled amateur with a penchant for video, the 60D is the first EOS camera to offer an articulated LCD screen, making it easier to shoot both stills and importantly video. Read our expert Canon EOS 60D Review to find out if Canon's new prosumer DSLR is a worthy addition to the EOS range.

Canon EOS 7D

The D7000 is a new prosumer DSLR camera from Nikon, blending features from the cheaper D90 and the more expensive D300s and adding some new ideas of its own. Taking on the Canon EOS 60D, the D7000 is the first Nikon DSLR camera to offer continuous auto-focus during video recording, and the first to feature a 16 megapixel DX image sensor.

Olympus E-P2

Olympus E-P2 Review thumbnail

Olympus have expanded their Micro Four Thirds family with the launch of the E-P2. Heavily promoted in a series of eye-catching adverts fronted by none other than Kevin Spacey, the E-P2 adds a smattering of new features to the existing E-P1. These include an optional electronic viewfinder, two new Art Filters, the ability to record movies in Manual mode, and a sober all-black finish. Gavin Stoker finds out if the Olympus E-P2 really is a camera for everyone in our latest expert review.

Pentax K-5

Pentax K-5 Review thumbnail

The K-5 is the second DSLR camera from Pentax for 2010, inheriting the existing K-7's proven control layout and incorporating a new 16.3 megapixel APS-C sensor. The Pentax K-5 offers an incredible ISO range of 80-51200 plus Full 1080p HD movies, 7fps burst shooting and a large high-resolution LCD screen. Read our Pentax K-5 review to discover if this mid-range DSLR can compete with the competition from Nikon and Canon.

Samsung NX10

Samsung NX10 Review thumbnail

The catchily named "mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras" are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with, a fact that Samsung have recognised with the launch of their own rival system to the Micro Four Thirds standard. The Samsung NX10 is the first model in the new series, featuring a DSLR-like design, large 3 inch AMOLED screen, electronic viewfinder, 720p video and a large APS-C CMOS sensor with 14.6 megapixels. With 30mm pancake, 18-55mm and 50-200mm lenses and a smattering of accessories available from day one and five more lenses to follow this year, Samsung are certainly making a sizeable investment in their compact/DSLR hybrid system. Read our Samsung NX10 review, complete with 50 JPEG samples and 12 RAW, to find out if it can out-perform its Olympus and Panasonic rivals.

Sony A33

Sony A33 Review thumbnail

The Sony A33 is a new kind of interchangeable lens camera, removing the optical viewfinder and moving mirror of a DSLR and replacing them with an electronic viewfinder and a fixed semi-translucent mirror. This combination allows the A33 to be smaller, lighter, faster and offer a better Live View experience than a comparably priced DSLR. Read our Sony A33 Review to find out if this is the future of interchangeable lens cameras...

Sony NEX-5

Sony NEX-5 Review thumbnail

Sony have joined the likes of Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung in the mirrorless system camera market with the release of the NEX-5 and NEX-3. With a 14 megapixel APS HD CMOS sensor, full 1080i HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen, optional external flash and two available lenses on launch, the NEX-5 certainly seems well-equipped to take on the already established competition. Find out if it has what it takes in our in-depth Sony NEX-5 review, complete with sample JPEGs, RAW files, movies and even 3D panoramas.
