I gather that the consensus is that Panasonic's recent bodies do video "better" than Olympus's. To put it more the way that interests me, I gather that the view of the cognoscenti is that the E-M1's video is not one of the otherwise excellent camera's strong points.

Why not?

What doesn't the E-M1 do that some recent Panasonic camera can do? And who does this matter to?

Thanks,

Forum contributor amtberg once spoke out a suggestion that IBIS does not allow to connect to sensor heat sink. A guess you know that sensors produce lots of heat, and while taking movie, this heat can't be dissipated naturally.

I would not mention somebody's educated guess without agreeing entirely.
