Other best part was "At its price point, many people are likely to be disappointed that Olympus chose to keep the four thirds sensor, instead of opting for a new larger unit that would have improved image quality. After all, this is a new line of cameras that could have had a fresh start. "

As a former journo I have to call this a PRICELESS IDIOCY...

I must admit that I have also found that statement about people likely to be disappointed by Olympus not opting for a new larger sensor blah blah ... extraordinary, even bizarre. It would seem that any camera reviewer with a good understanding of digital camera history and the current camera markets should know that that suggestion (opting for a bigger sensor) would be much more appropriate many years ago. At this time, when sensor technology finally delivers what M43 needs to hit big time (and with even better things to come as technology gets better), that suggestion makes zero sense IMO.

I agree too, not only because the IQ progress allows small sensors to be better, but also because it would imply a whole range of new lenses and given the financial situation of Olympus right now it doesn't make any sense to developper a new FF system.
