Panasonic GH1 vs Nikon d90

**I know this is the Canon camera section but I couldn't find a better place for this post.

I am looking at these two cameras, Panasonic GH1 and Nikon d90. I'm a bit of a noob with these SLR video cameras and just wondering which camera do you think is better for the price?

Also, will both cameras accept any 35mm lens? For example, I have an old Nikon 35mm with lenses from the 70's. Would these work? Thanks, any help is appreciated!

A good place to start for info about the GH1:

For HD video the GH1 is superior to the D90 in almost every regard. However, as good as the GH1 is, it has some unique gotchas, and also limitations shared by all video-capable DSLRs, as described in the posts above and elsewhere. YMMV.

Great thanks so much a lot of good info here. Are there any forums that are specifically related to video DSLRS?

So for these cameras do you need specific lens or will any old 35mm lens mount on them (without an adapter)? Thanks again!

My friend is getting one and I want to use it for an upcoming video project!

Hi Austin: Links to sources for relatively inexpensive lens mount adapter rings for the GH1 are in the GH1 FAQ on DVXuser.com and in my l-o-n-g thread on Cinematography.com, which I linked to in my post above.

DVXuser.com has several DSLR video-related forums.

There are also lots of folks here on the COW who have hard-won info to share about these cams, too. Maybe the COW will add a forum specifically for DSLR-for-video someday, but in the meantime there's the more general Digital Photography forum here:

Correction ...

Correction: Unfortunately, the B&H link in my previous post no longer points to an extremely detailed review written by DP Glenn Przyborski. I don't know if Glenn deleted it or if B&H took it down, but it's unfortunate it's gone.

Here's a brief but helpful GH1 & 7D-related post written by Glenn over on DVXuser.com:
