Sensor size is largely irrelevant.

Let's face it...five years ago Oly owners bought cameras even with a dated sensor and inadequate autofocus. They bought Oly because of the quality of the "package" and really good glass.

All the other owners bought their gear for their own perceived advantages.

FF aside, m4/3s and APSC sensors are very similar now, with differences being largely one of distinctions, as opposed to genuine differences. People on this forum - which is a very unrepresentative cohort of the general public - will buy for a different set of reasons, although there is a subset of fans who will buy their brand because it's their chosen brand.

I guess what I'm gently suggesting to the OP is that I'm not sure it matters, at least not technically.

Reading your point of view, I have also doubts now, but I guess there will be always well informed photographers and those will choose Micro 4/3 for certain, but you have reason when saying that there are people who just buy the brand they like without even get information from the other brands

Thank you for participating, it is from the good discussion that the light will come out
