reading the replies above, as usual a lot of people get the fact that the FF future is unavoidable, but some people seem to have confused that this rumor meant to imply an imminent change at Pana.  As mentioned this has come out of their long term planning and chances are you won't see this change in at least 2 to 3 years.  The best guesstimate is an announcement in fall of 14 for 2015 release.  So, this is a long term agenda.

some of the posters don't seem to understand that because FF is expensive now it will remain expensive.   In fact the price of FF sensors are falling and a 1500 FF DSLR from the top brands is a reality in 3 years.  Basically the APS-C and M43 will eventually be replaced by FF.  and Compacts will go away for the most part as people prefer to shoot with their phones.  Keep in mind phone cameras will continue to become more sophisticated.

There was a story last week that Pana is planning to close their Plasma TV plant to focus on OLED.  That's the next technology in TVs.  Change is part of the game in technology.
