A camera is a tool to record images.  If you can get the results you want, whether you are a P&S user, M43 user, APS-C user or FF user, then you are probably inclined to stay with the system you have, whether you know all of the other options out there or not.

If you are not getting the results you want, you look elsewhere until you find them....if you can.

Most people who are using M43 seem to have come to the format from DSLRs, and have chosen M43 as a compact alternative to chunky lens/body gear.  I would be very surprised if most M43 users were unaware of the differences between the formats...

Those M43 users who need very shallow DOF and want the ultimate in very high ISO performance understand that they will need a larger sensor, and many of them have a FF camera for when those circumstances arise.  Similarly, if you need fast C-AF tracking performance, an M43 is not going to be your gear of choice.....but for just about any other situation, it fills the niche for size and performance rather admirably.

Great post!  Sums it up nicely, actually.
