A transitional product? Seriously, Dude, what have you been smoking?

Not just m4/3, even the APS formats are also transitional products. It will be the same way as it was in the days of film: lots of different camera form factors and sizes -- from tiny to huge -- around the same FF format sensor. Not that other sensor sizes completely disappear, there were half-frame, APS, and smaller format cameras, but they never gained any traction. Remember  Canon EOS IX, Minolta Vectis, Nikon Pronea? -- nobody remembers those, they were always a tiny niche.

There is still possible a game with different aspect ratio variations of FF format. The 3:2 isn't ideal, 16:9 would have been better, but since it's an insignificant crop of 3:2 it won't likely to become a standard, but who knows.
