I would love to have better video output from my K-5, but any fast action is terribly stuttery, so I don't use it much.  I really don't want to carry two cameras, and video will definitely be part of the decision making critieria for my next camera.

I have been playing with the idea of getting a Fuji XT-1, to have a smaller lighter package to taking skiing and backpacking, and the 14mm f2.8 lens looks great for shooting the Milky Way.  But the video sucks, which makes it less atractive for skiing.  Also, if I have to have an EVF, I would like to enjoy the benefit of using it for video.
