Re: Is micro four thirds on its way out?

No format is on its way out. Not M43, not APS-C, not full frame.

The reason? You no longer buy a roll of disposable sensors which are fitted to your camera (as was the case before digital). In those days, if no one was selling film for your camera, you could no longer use it. That happened to disc film and 110 film, so dying formats were not a theoretical risk.

Bigger formats have some benefits, smaller formats have others. There is a reason for the range of formats that we have today, and technology has not materially changed the relative performance of different sensor sizes, only the absolute performance of all sensor sizes.
