What do yiu think? Is it time that m43s sensormakers get smart and focus on making a true difference where it matters or should they go on the way they do?

To me, MFT wasn't about the sensor but the size of the overall package. Whatever technology is added to an MFT sensor could just as easily be added to other sensors. The smaller sensor allows for smaller lenses than comparable ones for FF or APS-C formats and what swayed me to MFT was being able to stuff a bunch of lenses into a small bag. The 60mm macro on my E-M5 looks miniscule compared to my Nikon 105mm VR Micro-Nikkor and weighs 185g vs. 720g for the Nikon. That's almost 1/4 the weight.
