Canon just announced their 500d with 1080p recording, making it the first entry level dSLR with video. [not counting the Panasonic GH1 which technically isnt a dSLR]

Olympus, the company that first did Live View still has made no mention of video recording. Panasonic is doing it with a 4/3 sensor but not Olympus? If the E620 had video, it would probably be the greatest thing for Olympus ever.

my guess is that they'll possibly be saving this for their next flagship model

In my humble opinion, video is great. But not a deal breaker for me with SLR's. I love the 720p video on my Panny TZ5. But do I really need it on a SLR? I say to Oly, give me better high ISO performance at lower prices! :)

Yes, I am still complaining about the higher prices ... :evil:
