I'm fully aware of the timelapse, not hard to tell it apart from video. You know, it's the segments that move real fast I am talking about the video though, and it just does not look sharp. Are you saying that the video looks sharp to you?


I would bet the shirt on my back that if we put a GH2 side by side there we would see a world of difference.

I'd bet the shirt off my back that the difference wouldn't be larger than that between the D800 and the A99 in stills---noticeable, but hardly "ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod I need to switch brands right now to stay competitive!" better.

If I am wrong, I would like to know as I would like an upgrade path from my a77, but I would also like a video upgrade for that $2800.

Have you tried sharpening and adding grain in post? cheaper than buying a whole new system, certainly.
