Wow!!!

Um, big deal.

For many forum activists this would be unbearable to admit this.

Um, doubtful. You must be a Panasonic fan boy or fan girl. I have an E-M1 and all I care about is performance.

This surely is a joke? Otherwise your fanboy detector is set to too high a sensitivity.

The way the Sony sensor was embraced probably led to s_grins' remark.

However, the enthusiasm then was fully justified given that Olympus was perceived as being given second-rate old sensors by Panasonic up to that time, and the entrance of Sony represented good competition.

So logically those who enthusiastically greeted Sony should also enthusiastically greet this turn of events as this shows now valid competition with almost equal merits. The best possible situation. Sony has kicked Panasonic out of complacency, and Olympus gets to pick what they want on their own terms.
