My purpose in posting my disappointment in advance of the announcement is naively hopeful ..... in that, i seem to remember someone pointing out that Oly marketing/development folk sometimes read this specific forum.

I just want people to voice their frustration, I want Olympus to "listen to users" (to quote the tech guy in the leaked video of the EM1) hopefully someone at Olympus hears and an update or a last minute addition of some kind can make it in to the final production model.

Its just such a waste... 5 axis IBIS and poor video options. It makes no sense.

I agree completely. More and more pro work is videography for the web. This would be such an advantage for Olympus if it offered high quality video

I am sorry, but how 24 mbps is not high quality "videography for the web"? Most people, like 99%, don't even have connection that fast, so you will have to compress further.

What you don't understand about video is, the video file megabits is not just for original quality viewing, it's bigger advantage is there is a lot more data to play with, chroma keying, color grading, special effects all done in post.

These all effect how the image looks, web, cable, satellite or broadcast! Kind of like Raw , but not real raw. However raw is already starting to make in roads into the DSLR video camera world and it's coming fast.
