You do realize,,,

m43 uses the SAME sensor as 4/3.

To claim the sensor is dead is rubbish

to claim the format is dead is rubbish

And the 4/3 mount will live on for some years at least- they wouldn't go through the trouble if they wanted to abandon 4/3 entirely.

Maybe no new 4/3 lenses, but Oly considered the lineup more or less complete anyway.  I suspect they'll continue to make 4/3 lenses as long as folks will buy them.

Perhaps, though, it's the DSLR that is dead.
