I've long thought the "answer" is a MILC with an FF sensor and a range of high quality very slow lenses. Not much bigger than MFT, does the same job (except your normal ISO would be 800, not 200, but the quality would be the same).

However, when the occasion demands it, you take off the very slow, light lenses, and whack on a big prime. Instant DoF or low light ability.

Let's hope for Oly's sake no one does that. If the D600 is an FF MILC, and has f5.6 lenses to go with it, they have a problem.
