What compromises ?

It may actually allow better C-AF with existing M43 lenses.

just how could that be ? FT lenses are PDAF lenses, while existing MFT lenses are CDAF lensescould do you think that adding PDAF support will improve CAF on existing MFT lenses ?

Yes, it could speed up AF on MTF.  With PDAF it will give ou the direction and amount of in and out so there is less need to do  the many steps that CDAF needs.  The comined FDAF and CDAF in the Nikon System 1 V2 is extremely fast and can track really well.  Most likely better than the D800.

And the existing four third lenses will extend the appeal of M43 to many people for the occasions when you really need the brighter apertures.

I think that people who went MFT and never owned FT lenses are more interested in capable native MFT lenses than in buying actual MFT bigger lenses, especially since that would imply the acquisition of a new expensive body.

It will make actual FT users happy however, so good for them.
