I think m4/3s is in a really nice spot at the moment. So long as we keep getting decent sensors, then the IQ gap to the APS-C cameras is too minor to worry about. Every current camera can already print to A3 size comfortably.

However, compared to APS-C, a complete m4/3s kit ends up as tiny in comparison. I have a hunch this is partly why the Nikon D7100 has that 1.3x crop mode – to minimise m4/3s long glass size advantage.

Guessing on the future is a dangerous business, but I'm not feeling worried.
