I am definitely NOT going to pay $1500 for a body like this or Nikon D700 or Canon 7D etc.

If you are after PHOTO quality, you have a choice from many decent cameras: Canon 550D , Nikon D90, D500 etc. Or, if you have some money to spend, get a full-frame that will beat APS-C in every respect.

If you want a decent quality of video, NONE of these cameras offer it. Good words in reviews mean only that compared to {something}, they can record RELATIVELY good video. The truth is that that {something} as well as the reviewed camera produces unsatisfactory video. Look, for instance, at the second video clip in this review (panning). If you can watch it with any pleasure, good luck.

Botton line: I am waiting for Pana GH2 - it is much cheaper (with comparable lens) and can shoot good video indeed. And if I ever need ISO 51200::)) I will get Mk2.
