Video on DSLR's is here to stay, regardless of what you may think.
I've found it very handy from time to time to take a video instead of stills, but it doesn't mean I'll stop taking stills 80% of the time.
I also have a very good Sony HD camcorder, but find that my 60D takes better video than the specialised camera. I don't mind focussing manually, as when I started taking photos 50 years ago, that's all that was, and I still take many of my shots using manual focus.
Once you're used to focussing manually, it can be pretty quick and accurate.
I like the fact that I only have to take one camera with me when I go out on a shoot, and be able to take stills or video with the turn of a knob and the press of a button depending on what I see and want to record.
