So, my original GH2 (PAL) was one of the first from Hong Kong, and I just ordered a second from B&H, so it will be the US standard. However, the 1.1 firmware allows adjustment of some things regarding that...and one of the reasons for the second body was to hack one of them.

As for the OM-D, I bought one last summer and, on the same day, took it whale-watching outside Boston. Considering the movement of the boat and my total unfamiliarity with the camera (didn't even know how to manually focus in video, for example), I was pleasantly surprised by the video, as you have also said. The lens I used was the Pany 45-175X.

It will be interesting to see if someone creates a good hack for the OM-D to expand its video capabilities. Once in a while I read something on m4/3, but nothing solid.
