M43 Pocketablity
In reply to quezra, Jul 10, 2014

The best part of M43 is variety and choice.  As Kirk Tuck pointed out and so many other agreed with in the Pro forum, M43 is great for most pro work.  It offers the larger more comfortable bodies for those who prefer them as well as bodies smaller than the RX100 body.  Best of all, you can use the great lens selection on all of them without large adapter or compatibility issues.

When it comes to size you can't beat the GM1 or GX7 and pocket for of sharp wide aperture prime pancake lenses.   M43 is simply more pocketable than any other system besides the Pentax Q.  Even the Nikon 1 doesn't have the small fast primes.

So there you have it.   A wide variety of sizes, the best selection of lenses for any mirrorless system, and pros who feel the IQ is good enough for their needs.
