yes for still photography

Funny how quite a few are now either dumping DSLRs for the lighter system weight of m43

may live on for video shooter (just may)

now MFT camera heavy and expensive

Compared to what? Two bodies come out for m43 that are heavier/expensive so now all m43 is heavy and expensive?

low resolution, more noise, less dynamic range. much lower IQ than APS-C but sometimes heavier weight and more expensive

There is just so much wrong with this "statement". The biggest problem with APS-C, be it from Canon/Nikon or Sony is the staggering lack of native glass. Sure a GH5/EM1 is heavier than a Rebel if you want to cherry pick.

much heavier than 1 inch with similar IQ

LOL, yeah sure.

make sense for telephoto like BIF but how may percentage of photographer are really into telephoto to support MFT?

I doubt MFT long term prospect for photography. If u don't believe me, be patient

things move fast, just 3 years later see if I am correct

APS-C is the problem child. Why bother with it when you are forced to use FF glass? Just shoot with a same size FF body.
