Actually, it's kind of a mixed bag, IMO. You can only use the motion
jpeg capture at 720p. The 1080p24 setting is in reference to internal
processing, but the camera has to store it in AVCHD at 1080i, so it's
interlaced capture. Now, I can't stand interlacing artifacts, so to
me this is a 720p60 camera. Which is cool, but on paper there's
already a good reason for people serious about video to prefer the
Canon 5DII. The autofocus doesn't really play into it much, since
very few people shooting video for a living would be likely to use
autofocus.

Very few people buying this camera will be shooting video for a living. The 5DII also has bad rolling shutter effects. I don't know yet if the GH1 avoids this but I am hopeful.
