Panasonic G5 with 1080p50

Why would it be? The GH3 is the video orientated product. I'm still curious to see what the G5 can do though, with the new processor it has. I see from initial specs it also seems to have 25p as well, in Europe.

Looks like it may have manual controls for video.

Good about manual controls.

Out there however on the forums, a lot of people don't seem to understand why the GH3 will be far better. The GH3 is video optimised - different sensor, different read-out of the sensor, different encoding chip. There's no chance the G5 will be any where near the GH3 in terms of image quality.

1080/60p on such a low end camera as the G5 bodes very well for the high end stuff.

In particular, Panasonic have 120fps 720p and a 240fps mode on their FZ and LX updates. They have small sensors but it could be that the GH3 will get 120p as well. So there will still be differentiation between the G5's 1080/60p and the GH3's possible 1080/120p or 720/120p.

Apart from in low light where you'd need a fast shutter speed, 120p is a good format. It divides perfectly by 5 into 24p and perfectly in half for 60p. A very flexible frame rate indeed.

If Panasonic take this path, I hope they don't forget us PAL landers and add include 100p.

Could the GH3 (with the right technology) ever match the same light sensitivity of APS-C sensors?

Well considering the GH2 (in video mode) and E-M5 (in raw) already does... Yes.
