I was told that panny GF6 will be better than oly epl5 in video although they have same fps.

what makes the better quality in panny video compared to oly?

I experienced epl5 lose the focus frequently when shooting video. this does not happen in panny GF6??

Panasonic makes video cameras as a major product line so that experience carried over into the M4/3 cameras.

Olympus specialises in stills cameras and cameras that look in holes in your body (endoscopes). They don't seem to worry too much about the video except that marketing demands that it be included.

If really worried about video the first choice is a real video camera, second choice would be a Panasonic M4/3 camera then thirdly an Olympus M4/3 camera.

Somebody said that the Olympus high definition video is a joke anyway and muddy results happen, so the better choice is the lesser 1280 wide to get less mud.

AF with video is always a problem unless using a pocket camera with a tiny sensor and huge depth of field, better to do like the pros and only use manual focus and separate clips so focus is pulled differently for each clip.
