At current prices the G5 is a better all around package - it offers hacked GH2 quality video, albeit without full manual control,

Manual controls is WAY more important than a higher bit rate. In what way is the 1080p @ 60 FPS video the GH5 records similar to what the hack does for 1080p @ 24 FPS video?

The hack doesn't give you 1080p @ 60 FPS video and the G5 doesn't shoot 24 FPS video. In addition neither of their bit rates are similar either.

Your comment makes no sense at all. The GH2 and G5 shoot entirely different video. The GH2 allows you to completely control your video settings including the bit rate(With Hack). The G5 offers good 1080p @ 60 FPS video but you can only control shutter speed during video(Flicker Reduction Setting).

The G6 should be similar to the GH2 in that it will have manual controls for video but it still probably won't have 24p and it might not even have 1080p @ 60 FPS.
