So judging by these recent threads, half the m43 are jumping ship for the RX10 and half are jumping ship for the A7.

Is this the end of m43? Kind of sad for all those nice m43 primes going to waste for the shiny Sony cameras. But judging by all these answers in this thread, m43 is even overkill. People just want snaps and convenience. So all the small size vs DSLR arguments I've had were really BS. It's not small size, or low weight but convenience with sort of decent IQ up to ISO 800. At least now I understand.

The whole rationale behind mFt is a smaller lighter more convenient to carry system with decent image quality. If you are looking for the best resolution, or the best high ISO ,or the best DR or the best colour depth , mFT wouldn't be at the races .

All camera systems are sacrifices with mFt compared to larger formats you sacrifice absolute image quality for small and convenient , perhaps you have not noticed the thousands of posts here that mention exactly that .For very many uses mFt is overkill each to their own
