As lab D says, the biggest complaint is lack of 24p.  At 30p, I doubt most could tell the difference between cameras.  I doubt I could.  Panasonic probably has a better CODEC, the software the camera uses to compress the image (some are better than others).  Because Panasonic makes a lot of professional video equipment I believe that knowledge carries over into their consumer line, where they don't have a strong "stills" camera edge.  Panasonic cameras also have a lot of configuration choices geared to the videographer.  Interestingly, only Olympus has in-camera stabilization for video at the moment.  That's not to be sneezed at  In fact, some would rather have that than 24p.
