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.

Any advantage of IBIS is taken away with the use of a tripod or a lens with OIS.

No.

A tripod is weight and the camera must be static

OIS requires an OIS lens.

Most m43 primes and good cine lenses do not have OIS

The advantage of IBIS is not "taken away"
