Come on Oly !!! Is the E-M1 a PRO camera or not? Crippled crappy video options?

From 43rumors:

Full HD 1920 x 1080 (16:9) 30p, 24Mbps (MOV)
Full HD 1920 x 1080 (16:9) 30p, 16Mbps (MOV)
HD 1280 x 720 (16:9) 30p, 12Mbps (MOV)
HD 1280 x 720 (16:9) 30p, 8Mbps (MOV)
HD 1280 x 720 (16:9) / 30 frames per second (AVI Motion JPEG®)

I know Oly's focus has always been on stills, but what PRO camera in 2013 has such limited and pathetic video quality options?

This is going to hurt sales. no doubt. What a mistake.

Let's wait until the official announcement. If this is true, then it does lose some of its appeal to me and the GX7 gains some.

Well, if that's true then you might want to consider the GF3, which can be had for 100 bucks used and is hackable to some very high bit rates with spanning and everything ...

Asking Oly to build a video cam is basically pointless ... they don't seem all that interested. Of course, having written that, they will now launch something that appeals to even the most die hard video head lol ...
