Need some help from you video mavens.

I gather that the consensus is that Panasonic's recent bodies do video "better" than Olympus's. To put it more the way that interests me, I gather that the view of the cognoscenti is that the E-M1's video is not one of the otherwise excellent camera's strong points.

Why not?

What doesn't the E-M1 do that some recent Panasonic camera can do? And who does this matter to?

Thanks,

I think the main drawback with the most effect is the frame rates. Although the codec is noticeable in some situations the frame rate can stop you doing things almost completely. No smooth slow mo, no indoor shooting in a lot of the world, no worldwide standard "filmic" framerate.
