I'm hesitant to interject at all, but one way in which the G5 may be better for video is its offering of 1080 60P at 28Mb/s (AVCHD 2.0). I haven't checked the Oly's video specs lately, but if I recall correctly, it doesn't offer 60P. I could be mistaken though.

I certainly agree that IBIS would be nice for video with primes.

No problem. I have kept asking Kim about this just to find out if there are any real advantages of the G5 when it comes to video but he has dodged the question every time. Your recollection that the E-M5 doesn't offer 60P is correct, so the score is reduced from 4-0 to 4-1 (at least until the hackers have managed to do the same with the E-M5 as they have already done with the GH2).
