Ever since the 4/3 came out and I bought the E1 and the ZD 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 combo, there have been continuous rumblings about 4/3 being a bad idea, how the sensor is too small, there aren't enough megapixels, high ISO is too noisy etc.

4/3 was a bad idea it lost money from start to finish . In truth Olympus have only made a tiny profit in the last year from their camera division most of which was down to restructuring. Had Olympus not been making money elsewhere 4/3 and m43 would have been closed down long ago

Then it morphed into m43 and although it's now at 20MP, high ISO is fine and the glass is excellent, some people just can't stop predicting its doom.

It did not morph the DSLR system was a failure from a finacial perspective and was killed off . The support for using FT lenses on adapters is only really of use for the two top tier Olympus the E-M1 and E-M1II

I shot some of my best stuff with 43 and m43 cameras. Image quality was always top notch, the optics were top notch, and there are two major camera manufacturers committed to the standard. It's not going away any time soon, from what I can tell.
