the D800 focuses while filming - what a joke?

I've read reviews, sorry: the D800 has a slooow CDAF in LV, and thus can't film with AF, and makes funny noises while attempting the thing.

But, yes, the GH2 can achieve that wonderful feat! Funny, camcorders, even those with large-ish sensors, have been doing this forever.

P.S. I know that most serious films are shot in MF - but they require rehearsed actor and camera movements, and there's one full-time person just in charge of the focus. And even so, some scenes do include things unwillingly going out of focus at times.
