So what do you think? what was the target market that 4/3 was originally gunning for?

They thought they could capture some of the pro market as they thought they might in the 70s with the OM series. The problem is the ( 35mm) pro market was so entrenched in Canikon it made no impact! Consequently the Prosumers and previous Oly fans (such as myself) were the ones to buy into the system. I did not go digital till the E-3, never looked at Canikon offerings, and I'm still quite satisfied I made the right decision for my style of shooting!
