Video looks stellar to my eye.
Let's hear it for Micro Four Thirds power.
As I mentioned on another post, I have an Olympus EP-1--not sure quality is as good as yours, but I'm happy with it.
Here are some vids and pics I took at Ibex earlier this month:
Is there any way to rotate the video on YouTube?

I actually think the EP1 is a better still camera than the GF1. It handles noise above ISO 800 better than the Panny.

However, from the few samples I have seen from the EP1 the AVC-HD lite compression is better than the EP1's.

Both are fantastic cameras though. If the rumors are true the EP2 should be spectacular. I guess we have to wait till October 31st for that though.

Yes you can rotate video with programs like AVS converter, Sony's video vegas, and even Quicktime pro will do it. However, the video ends up being 720x1280 which just doesn't fit well on a typical computer screen. Your best bet is to remember that you CAN'T ever shoot portrait video. I have thrown away a few videos myself because I forgot to switch to landscape.

What lens do you use? I heard the noise when it zoomed in one of the clips. That was quite distracting. I highly recommend getting the Panasonic 20 mm F1.7 for your EP1. It is truely a fantastic lens and works extremely well on your camera since the camera has built in IS.
