Interesting article on MFT and why it will outlast Canon & Nikon, some of his argument is sound

His arguments are silly.

m4/3rds has no advantages over Canon ....Canon and Nikon have answered with their own mirrorless.

You mean the very slow focusing Canon that uses Full Frame lenses?  You call that an answer??

I will tell you one of the biggest advantage on paper that m4/3rds is that the lenses are interchangeable across brands.

But they have done nothing to capitalize on this. They all produce the same lenses, just different brands.

So Both Panasonic and Olympus both make 75mm primes?   Both make F/2.8 zooms?  Do they also make F/.95 lenses?  What do you mean by same lenses?

Not to mention lesser IQ, and a host of other problems, no OVF and such.

what advantage will m43rds have? Size/weight to combat all the downsides.

Well, the current M43 sensors are better than the Canon APS sensors (DxO rates 71to 62).  CDAF cameras focus more accurately than the most expensive Canon cameras/lenses (proven in the DPR article)...and then there is the size and weight.

I say it will die off.

Just like CDs...after they wiped out LPs.
