I have an Olympus and Panasonic for a few reasons: Olympus- IBIS is awesome, video is so so. I see the video break apart way too often (kids in the pool splashing, moving trees with the wind). Needs more bitrate for sure. Autofocus is no where near Panasonics. I can't even use it for changing focus between 2 subjects with how far off focus needs to get before it gets it locked. A shame really making IBIS a manual focus low motion activity scene only use for me. For photographs imo it's near perfect, ergonomics, buttons and controls are no where near a GH2 / GH3 imo but I can live wit that. Panasonics - Video is AWESOME but I wish it had 5 axies IBIS. If the GH2 and GH3 had IBIS I think I wouldn't be looking for another body. If the GX7 had 5 axis IBIS short of having the perfect lens to go with it I'd be done. I find myself in constant anticipation on m43 rumors because I'm just shy of the perfect camera body and have HIGH HOPES the high end OMD does video proper and leverages not only IBIS but sensor phase detection for autofocus. Lenses - I'm now stocked with awesome primes, and I find I get SUPER frustrated with them. 20mm being my favorite I can't use on my OMD (slow focus) and fixed on my GX1. When I shoot the 45mm while family is over it's amazing then I turn and need to take a group shot of kids playing BAM I go run to put the 25 or 20 on and I miss the moment. I can grab potraits of each but I wanted the bigger picture. To this end I feel I want a fast zoom. I've tried shooting indoors with the OMD at 2.8 to see if the 12-35 would cut it and it kind of does but I go high iso at times because I need high shutter speed (kids). This makes me want a better fast zoom (larger or not). Conclusion - Now I can say I LOVE this system but the gaps above keeping me hoping for something perfect to come out. While I know people say this 'doesn't exist' I think some competitors are about to make it happen. Being a hybrid shooter I thinking the upcoming Canon 70D plus the now released Sigma 18-35 F1.8 will be THE system to own for hybrid shooters. This system (granted larger setup) would replace ALL my primes and satisfy my video wants (minus IBIS). If you look at videos of 70D's dual pixel phase detection autofocus in video it's exactly what videographers are looking for and what I'm hoping miraculously Olympus pulls off on their new camera coming out. Now while the GX7 comes close to me to being a perfect camera (minus IBIS) the Sony NEX7 coming it is supposed to have Olympus's IBIS implemented. I don't know what zooms are available for the NEX but if the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 comes out for the NEX and this body exists I may consider the switch. Anyhow, just some thoughts that have been going through my mind, curious if others share similar gaps in the system as I see leading to constant GAS. I always feel like 'it's almost there'. GX7 with IBIS + a slightly faster zoom then the current 2.8 set would have me stop. IDEAL - What keeps me waiting, the hopes for a Olympus high end OMD with phase detect autofocus that works in video with IBIS and SUPER fast focus with legacy 4/3 glass. Sell my primes (minus the 20) and get the 14-35 F2 Olympus and BAM, no more GAS. Oh and the 35-100 f2.8 for outdoors, then no more GAS. Wait, then the 7-14 =). End rant.
