I don't shoot m4/3 because of size

Who else out there is shooting m4/3 not because it's small, but because it's technically better than its competitors?

Fast, accurate autofocus with no front/back focus issues. Large and bright electronic viewfinders. A better selection of lenses than APS-C cameras and better build quality on those lenses. Better video features. Bodies with more complete feature sets.

I appreciate the size difference. It's definitely nice to have, especially after using a full frame 70-200/2.8 for a day. But it's not the reason I'm using m4/3 cameras. With the new sensors we're seeing in recent cameras, the image gap with APS-C has closed. Simple fact is, I'd pick an OMD or GH3 over D7000 or 7D because the Oly and Pana mirrorless options are just better cameras at the end of the day*. That's me, anyway.
