Olympus should drop the video altogether. Then everyone wins. Stills photographers get the camera they desire and deserve, and video folk have the opportunity to stop whining and go purchase a proper video camera.

I don't use my sports car to haul horse manure, so we shouldn't expect a fine still camera to do it either.

Agree completely - remove the video for all I care.

Fine if you want and can afford two different camera systems. Most on this board are like me, I suspect. Almost everything I shoot is stills; for the occasional video footage of grandkids or steel head fishing I want video capability built-in. I do not want to haul around another body and set of lenses that rarely will be used.

OTOH, I think that the specs listed above are more than adequate for the overwhelming majority of M43 users.
