....The problem is they're trying to compete in the main consumer segment with kit lenses and some standard primes and there's really no advantage of the 1" sensor there over m4/3 or APS-C. Flat images, low DR, the only advantage is their fast AF but nobody remembers the AF, it's the pictures you take that are remembered.

Well, if you can get the picture in focus!  

Seriously, though, the smaller sensor's advantage is size, especially in the tele range.
