When Panny transfers the guts of the GH1 into a body set up for video

just that. If they take a really bold step and use 3 4/3 sensors....
wow. That would make a serious pro level video tool for probably
three or four grand. They could knock Canon out, and give low end
Sony pro video gear some real worries.

This is what I'm really excited to see if Pany does. If they started making pro bodies with the mFT mount, things could really take off. Basically creating a pro ecosystem of body/lens'. They could bring out professional grade mFT (HD) lens', ones with field use in mind. If someone wanted to pay the coin they could use them on their GH1.

On the pro-video front they could take on some of the smaller format RED cameras.
