Re: No. Nikon is the laughing stock with tiny sensor in same size as m4/3

m4/3 cameras with a sensor 6 times larger and a wide collection of FAST 1.4 and 1.8 > primes are the same size, weight and cost.
Nikon is pathetic, the only motivation was not to compete with DSLR sales.
Now that Canon is coming Nikon should revamp the whole pathetic system 1 series.

The MFT sensor has an area of 225 Sq mm against the 116 sq mm of the Nikon 1 CX sensor.
That means that the MFT sensor is just under twice the size of the CX sensor.

However, the Nikon sensor punches well above its size and is capable of producing excellent image quality.
I hope this helps.
