The GH1 looked, to us, like a G1 but with the video function now working. Did we miss the clues as to what the 'GH' line would deliver or did they only start to emerge in the later models?

Yet, while all this was going on, Panasonic would quietly begin a second revolution with the release of the 1080-capable GH1.

It's strange to think back now and realize that Nikon and Canon introduced HD video to DSLRs before those capabilities came to mirrorless (the 720p-shooting Nikon D90, also launched at Photokina 2008, was completely overshadowed by the EOS 5D Mark II's ability to shoot 1080 just a few days later). But I don't think we were alone in not seeing just how significant the GH line was going to become for filmmakers, when high quality video arrived in mirrorless.
