I would be happy if video functions became an option and if bodies were manufactured without any video. If I want video, I will use a video camera...and get better results!

that's not realistic in todays world. That's like asking camera manufacturers to not include auto focus as they want the 'manual' feel of old film cameras. Reality is, video is a part of cameras and frankly is only going to become more important as time goes on. Well, maybe not for us older folks (though I don't consider myself THAT old), but for the younger generation, video is a must in cameras.

As for better results...hmm...that depends, assuming you know what you are doing, video from GX7, GH3 etc. are top of the field and are of professional levels, well, GH3 anyhow, though GX7 comes close...albeit with a number of limitations such as lack of mic input. For the average joe's, yes, consumer video cameras probably are better, but for those interested in video, the likes of GH3 or even the GX7 is far better than consumer level video cameras.
