Re: Disagree

You assume pro photogs will be happy enough with the IQ this body provides, size be damned. Maybe this will be the body that will do it, but the sensor will have to be something special for stills shooters to add to their bag. I get that video guys will want it. Although, over a hacked GH2 at half or less the price I'm not sure I'm seeing much additional value.

I disagree. Both Panny and Oly offer a range of sizes and features. This is Panny's flagship aimed at serious or pro photogs willing to lug a larger m43 body in lieu of even larger dslr systems. As a system it is still much much smaller.

C and N will fight back with larger sensors. That's what's happening now with d600, d6 etc. Each format will have its strengths and weaknesses. Pros doing hybrid still/video may want/need two systems for a while, one based on FF Dslrs and another on mirrorless.
