Is this where "movie mode" is taking DSLRs?

    I had missed the announcement of the Casio Exilim EX-FH20 when responding to
    the thread announcing the online video from the 5D Mk II a few weeks back.
    Here is a quote from the DPReview article:

    "The EX-FH20's burst mode allows up to 40 7.1MP images to be recorded in
    burst [sic] of anywhere between 1 and 40fps."

    So, is the "movie mode" in the 5D and other SLR's a precursor to this type
    of capture? Will a high frame rate, pro-DSLR be coming out that will allow
    sports and other action photography at something like video frame rates with
    acceptable image quality, something like a 1D MkII, but with 20-30 fps
    bursts?

    On another note, is it possible to have both an optical and electronic
    viewfinder on the same DSLR?
