Seth after seeing the release I am now more convinced that this is a master stroke and excellent marketing. As to the Old tech . They had to dramatically down scale the camera. They did not put it in a vice and squash it , they probably have had to redesign the mirror box , etc. As to the 18MP sensor its still equal and better than some of the 4/3 stuff. Its an interesting approach and I think it will work. As to people on this site going on about it . Hell they would bet and argue  about 2 flies racing to see who get to a dog thing on the lawn first.

If a friend came to me and said they wanted a better camera that is not to big and something he could grow with I would recommend this canon.

Why not Olympus well I have to few friends as it is.

I went to a Sangoma to throw the bonesĀ  and offered him his usual 3 chickens , 1 goat , a bottle of brandy and R500 to tell me what Olympus would do and with 4/3 he said that we had tried this once before and it was an impossible task an I was to bugger off and and take my things back and not bother him again.
