I would assume there are some conditions to this deal to secure the sensor which may well have included certain things like limiting the video options. Panasonic is clearly trying to stake out the video market And Olympus is barely even trying to compete in that market.

in a camera absolutely packed with features and options like the EM1 is do you not find it strange that they only appear to have made the minimal effort for video. Is there any company in the world that would just leave cash on the table like that, for absolutely no reason?

Yes, look at Fuji, almost no controls for video.
