I've Samsung pocket cams, which make excellent 1280x720 (incl. stereo) and Canon SX1, which produces same 43 Mbps 1920x1080 like 5DMkII - not the yellow from egg, because 43 Mbps is card-eating & senseless.

But I can tolerate this (cards are cheap), 1000x better then 500Ds weak 1920x1080/20fps - you can forget.

Do you have anything to back up this claim?

I'm in the same boat. D90 or wait for Canon T1i. I've tried the D90 and it's a great camera actually the reason i crossed the line from Canon to Nikon. But the T1i might bring me back. GH1 sounds really nice on paper but i'd like to wait how it really performs for both photo and video.

Or wait for Nikon D400? :?

this depends on what you want from your camera. Forget Canon, Nikon and Panasonic - get Leica M8 :blah:
