Could? Yes...

But, should?

Maybe I'm missing something here, but that strikes me as another opportunity to try and do something that Canikon is already doing...and for the most part, doing well.

If I recall, that last time we tried to compete in that sandbox, it did not end well.  The strength of m4/3s is leveraging advantages that the other guys don't have.  And Pany/Oly have definitely done that with m4/3s.  I'm sure I'll be told what I'm missing somewhere in this thread, but I just don't see the ROI in Oly FF.

Now...providing optical designs and getting a piece of Sony FF action....that might be a good way to play.
