These cameras can not possibly coexist. As soon an the first m4/3 adapter is available everyone will instantly use them on their new a7. Olympus will have no choice but to take the honorable way out.


APS-C NEX gets limited to 10-15MP in crop mode on the A7(r). M43 glass are designed to accomodate a smaller sensor than APS-C. Yeah, people will rush to buy a 1500 dollar camera just to get an adapter to shoot at 6-10MP with m43 glass.

FF is a do-over. If (and it's a pretty big if) Oly goes FF, they have to go full in with new glass. Otherwise, why bother?

It also seems that everyone things this E-mount ff is going to be a huge hit on the market.

Time will tell but Sony didn't manage to take a significant marketshare for A-mount ff or even A-mount APS-C. The also didn't manage to demolish m4/3 with E-mount APS-C like a lot of people thought in the beginning of the mirrorless competition.

Time will tell, but I think m4/3 will do just fine on its own.
