I often see people like RovingTim over here saying that Olympus lost their way with the bigger camera gear, and the whole point of fourthirds was to create a smaller, more portable system, the promise of which only MFT seems to have now finally fulfilled.

I've never really agreed with this. My opinion was that from the outset, Olympus had the goal of competing at the highest level in the pro market.

If they are competing at the 'highest level', then they needed a competitive sensor. Especially with the technology in 2003, this wasn't going to happen with a sensor 1/4 to 1/2 the area of other popular cameras.

Why not? it seems to be happening now with the EM5/1 sensor ??

The highest ISO on the 1Dx is 200,000.

Ok, fair point. I'm afraid I'm stuck in base ISO performance mode with MFT. Oh the irony .....
