Canon really doesn't care what m4/3s users think

and Canon owners will buy it because it says "Canon." That's really all they care about.

This is Canon's way of trying to nibble around the edges of the sub-APSC sensor market without compromising their APSC dSLR sales.  It's actually not a bad set of compromises.  This is what you'll see from Canikon until they see definitive sales losses to Oly/Pany.  They're going to ride the dSLR horse until it drops, and then - and only then - will you see a serious competitor to m4/3s.  I'm betting it's sitting in their R&D department now, awaiting the call to file the patent.
