Re: M43 is finished? Lens size says NO.

As I'm sure others have said, no matter how small these FF bodies are, the lenses are BIG. That's even the case with APS-C. (On a side note, look how Nikon messed up by never provided a decent set of primes for its DX range).

In contrast, M4/3 offers lenses that are compact and still high quality. The Olympus 45/1.8 is a compact marvel, to take just one example. Panasonic's excellent F2.8 pair, the 12-35 and 35-100, weigh less than 700 grams combined.

However, as I've mentioned before, Olympus and Panasonic need to look at adding weather-sealing to the compact primes. At this stage, I think the Olympus 60/2.8 macro is the lightest weather-sealed M4/3 lens, at 180 grams.
