This conversation is getting kind of harsh, it's relevant, but it isn't worth all this drama.

It's ok if people don't care about 24p. It is important to some people to have this, but for me this is mostly because it's the standard framerate for filmmaking. I don't feel strongly about the look. Realistically, the bitrate is probably a bigger issue than the framerate. That said, when there are so many other cameras out there which shoot 24p as well as 60p, it's hard for a video person to settle on this camera as an ideal option.

Lack of 25p is seemingly a bigger issue for the PAL folks, I'm surprised I haven't heard more about that.

Regarding 1080@60p -- it's true that no m4/3 cam has this yet, which is significant. Based on side-by-side comparisons on Vimeo, however, the hacked GH2 at 720p nearly out-resolves Nex7 at 1080p. It crushes it at 1080p, although Nex7 has some serious advantages in DR. Both are pretty desirable, really.
