Re: It's very clear now: Olympus won't focus on video!

Reading between the lines, I can't help but believe that there's a tacit agreement between Oly and Panny about what they will feature in their cameras. Oly will hold back on video features and Panny won't threaten Oly's superior IBIS (or liveview blinkies, perhaps). This is the only thing that makes sense to me. As others have argued, it really wouldn't take much for Oly to upgrade their codecs and the argument that they "don't want the market to get the wrong idea [about video]" is patently absurd.
