This is so true. People have tried to explain it to me, but I just can't grasp the need for PROFESSIONAL-quality video on a hybrid m43 camera. I'll bet 99% of the videos shot with them are viewed once by friends and family and filed away. For this purpose even the video in the PM1 would be satisfactory.

Now I know there are exceptions, and some people shoot real video on m43 hybrid cameras. But both of the real videographers I know (PROFESSIONAL videographers) shoot with dedicated video cameras, not hybrids.

Unless you do the video equivalent of "making a large print"--the justification for all that IQ for stills shooters--I just don't see why it's so critical to have cutting-edge video capabilities.

And most of the PROFESSIONAL photographers I know use a Canon 5D. So Olympus should just give up their stills quality, too, huh.
