Marketing and such

M43 differs in the US as opposed to elsewhere due to a complete lack of marketing, the decline of brick and mortar stores, the lack of a presence in big box stores, and seriously screwed up US structuring. For example, for that last point Panny is often months late to the US with new products and different parts of Panny supply  and sell camera bodies and batteries for said camera bodies.

combine all that with traditional American preference for bigger is better.... I would hesitate to say m43 is declining though.
