In a few years I expect sensor technology to be better and that as a result 4/3 sensors will be good enough most of the time. When that happens 4/3s will be at the level APS-C is now. Then users will be faced with the same question they are now - will you put up with the additional size and weight for narrower DOF? I suspect for many the answer will be "yes". Perhaps that includes me too. Until then FUJI !

Yes, m43 may be improving (so is sensor technology in other formats) but the laws of physics and DOF and its relation to sensor size will never change. Users interested in selective focus and beautiful shallow DOF will mostly either use APS-C, FF or larger.

Or maybe they will simply use their m43 bodies with fast glass such as nokton 25/0.95 (also miles faster and more DoF than fuji equivalent).

Even the other less dramatic glass gives more than enough DoF such as the pan leica 25mm f1.4 or the Oly 75.

Next! Lol

Funny. So, a $1000 lens that is almost a stop slower than a $400 full-frame 50/1.4 (currently on sale for $340, actually), with no electronics or motors or communication with the camera whatsoever. But yes, WAY smaller and lighter, for sure. Maybe we should just all make our own choices about the trade-offs that matter to us?

Do you realise f0.95 is actually faster than f1.4? And glass that fast costs a lot of money.

Dude, *you* are the one arguing equivalency. A 0.95 on 4/3 is 35mm equivalent of 1.9. That is almost a stop slower than a 50/1.4 on a 35mm sensor.

f0.95 is the same 'speed' (light gathering ability) on any format. f0.95 is still f0.95 on 35mm.

I just don't get why the sensor size obsessed guys are so fixed on equivalency, half the time your facts are wrong anyway, and the rest really doesn't matter.

I like the note about Ansel Adams shooting on what was then a 2 X crop factor camera - hoho if only there were DPreview members to save him from his terrible mistake.
