Not me - I buy a camera for stills and would get a video camera if I wanted to shoot movies, so for me the video capabilities are irrelevant

And we should take advice from someone who just assumes a video camera is better for video because it is referred to as a "Video Camera"? Video cameras were surpassed for both video and stills a long time ago by Panasonic Hybrid cameras.

Nope - I wasn't offering advice, merely responding to your rather sweeping statement "Everyone Loses" when what you maybe meant was, "Everyone for whom Video is important loses"?

Which is Olympus huge loss, don't you get it, the cost to add a few things like bitrate, 24/25/50/60p is peanuts and it means they sell lots more cameras which means more money for r&d, more lens investment etc etc. IBIS is fabulous for video now go and unleash its power with decent video.

I don't use video either, but to release a $1500 ostensibly "Pro" body in the day of the GH3 and 5D MkIII that has consumer grade (or less) video features is sure to drive away sales.  Photographers now rightfully expect their Pro IL cameras to be fully capable of being dual purpose at events such as weddings.

If as indicated on 43Rumors, Olympus has seriously misjudged the market for a $1500 body on this.  But then, it's a rumors site, so hopefully wrong.
