If the sensor was bigger :o

... an m4/3 camera carrying a sensor that was too large for the lens's image circle would be a nice surprise ...

What a wonderful feat of logic ...

A lot of people miss the slightly oversized multi-aspect ratio sensor used in the GH1/GH2.

Fair enough ... I guess I will have to change my comment then to: "What a wonderful feat of obfuscation" because it certainly was not worded in such a way as to recall a slightly larger multi aspect sensor.

But maybe it is meant as a subtle gesture to be picked up by those who lamented the loss of multiaspect ... and despite owning the GH2, I don't lament it for stills. Maybe video, as the cams that use that sensor have indefinably superior video (GH2, G5 and G6) in my opinion. But then, the newer cams are getting pretty amazing too ...
