The ergonomics is the big one for me. Yes, the camera will likely
make great videos, but will it be practical to use for anything but
short clips? I cannot see holding it up during a concert for a long
time, or during any long-term event for that matter. Hand crampage.

Really, someone needs to invent something for holding a camera up,
off the ground, something that you can then pan the camera with, but
that doesn't require you to hold the camera in your hand.

Or maybe something to let you mount a camera on your shoulder...

Maybe someone will come out with a center-balanced
hand-strap/shoulder mount and remote for this camera to emulate how a
real video camera should be held? I foresee a lot of herky-jerky
videos caused by holding the camera in one hand while attempting to
zoom with the other.

Hell, you can outfit your DSLR to the point that it looks ugly as
hell if you want:

Just like the doctor ordered. Now you can get your buddy to focus while you man the twist zoom lol...
