Some allusion to MFT size sensor there, as well, it seems.
When I consider just how good the IQ is from my Oly EM10's tiny sensor, with just enough ability for OOF areas and DoF control, it seems like the 4/3 system was well conceived for all around compromises.
I can landscape at low ISO with some shadow push ability, use iso25600 and get usable images for small prints, put on a long lens for shallow DoF shooting, all in a tiny light package.
Yup, that sensor size is a good compromise.
On the other hand, when Canon finally decides to put both feet in the mirrorless race, the M mount system will yield better IQ than a 4/3 system can. Though Canon seems to have stumbled out of the gate, mirrorless wise, I think we all know that when Canon gets serious, they have the tools and knowledge to produce at least a very competitive camera. Maybe by then they will have improved their sensor/readout components and that, combined with maturing DPAF tech, may allow them to be class-leading in the segment. It's good to dream...
