The Panasonic Look (in refrence to DVX, HVX) same with GH2?

Ive shot thoroughly on just about every popular camera including the DVX100, XL2, HVX200, HPX170, EX3, EX1, JVCHD250, Canon 7D, 5D.

In studying each camera, customizing looks and using picture profiles for each device, i have concluded that to my eye, I am subjective to the "Panasonic look." I find this more pleasing over the other cameras I've used. This In reference to the way Panasonic seems to render 24p motion particularly. I assume this would/could also be in part an element of Panasonic's default picture profiles such as CineV, ect, but mostly I'm talking about the way motion of moving subjects seems to look particular to Panasonic.

My question, having not used the GH2 (nor GH1) yet, is if the Panasonic look is similar to the DVX, HVX, HPX170, in motion of its 24p implementation in the GH2. I have looked at some of the new-coming clips on Vimeo, but so far nothing is conclusive to this for me. Basically I'm after what looks like an HVX's 24p but has the advantage of what DSLR's can achieve. This is the ideal camera for me and if this is the GH2 then this is the camera for me.

I've heard before a lot of people say they seem to think 24p implementation is essentially the same in all cameras, thus they should all be capable of achieving a matching look. I don't think this is true but i don't know and if it is true. To me, an HVX looks like an HVX and an EX3 looks like an EX3 even after picture profiles, at least the ones ive used.
