There is one very simple solution to all of this. If Sony were to choose any one of the current NEX cameras and re-tool it with a m43 sensor, and retain the e-mount, current lenses, etc...... then the field of view would be narrowed by 25%. The edges of images would be pulled through closer to the center of the lens, never approaching the corners which generate distortion. As a result of doing this, NEX lenses on such a modified camera (as the 16, the 16-50 and the 18-55) would produce much better results, maybe just as good as the m43 lenses from Olympus and Panasonic.

People have questioned why Sony doesn't produce a line of m43 cameras. This can be done so very easily as I've just demonstrated.. can just crop the output current sensor however you like and achieve exactly the same results.

Even the lowly 16mm looks great after a light crop.    And I still get to use the great Sony sensor.
