This will be the next step, no doubt about it and am surprised Panasonic didn't move towards this with the GH3. With the excellent resolution now available from the primes and Pana super duo it is surprising that they didn't work harder to create a 24mp super m43 sensor with multi-aspect providing aprox 5500x4125 in the 4:3 aspect for 22.5mp, 5700x3800 in the 3:2 ratio for 21.5mp and 6000x3375 in the 16:9 ratio or 20mp.

The 24mp will reward you with a visible increase of diffraction compared to a rather small increase of resolution. With todays 16mp sensors f16 is heavily impacted by diffraction, f11 in most cases visibly impacted and f5.6 or faster with no visible impact.

With 24mp f16/f11 will almost become unusable, f8 visibly impacted and only f4 or faster with no visible impact. I don't think the majority of photogs has any interest in such a limitation.

If increase of resolution is really a priority then a better solution would be non-Bayer sensor like the Sigma Foveon sensor.
