Canon has a better system on other cameras

Turning off sound is a very poor option. Canon does it far better in the S1, S2, S3 series. They should implement the ultrasonic motor zoom on a higher end camera like the G series. That is more important to me than HD video.

Olympus's alternative is a drastic compromise that I would never want to take. Video needs sound.

My olympus has an option to turn optical zoom on/off in movies

When you turn zoom on it turns the microphone off. Simple. it works. Olympus has had it since the C2020 (1999). It isn't rocket science.
