just wonder which car to buy next, the rate the manufacturers are losing market share / going out of business + the drive to get rid of diesel and petrol vehicles in the next 20 years would really give me cause for concern (were it not for the fact I am old enough that the odds are I shall be long gone by the time its really a worry )

My in-laws who live in London had to ditch their diesel car for a hybrid because the congestion charge would be prohibitive (£30/day) otherwise.

in my view, cameras aren't a long term investment but tools to be used and enjoyed now.

Good lenses are, though, and if a system is going down, it may make sense to offload them before they lose their residual value.

Exactly

so, if worried sell the m4/3rds lenses, buy a metabones smart T then load up with canon L lenses to keep your investment safe

I use the trade in value of my equipment to upgrade, Like many, it makes my photography affordable. Digital photography gear has a useful life of about five or six years now.

I am due to replace my aging EM5's next year or so. If I continue with M43, I want to buy gear that has a good possibility of being supported over time. I do not want to find myself in the position of those who bought a rather good Samsung camera and then found it out that Samsung had stopped making cameras.

A Samsung camera or lens has almost zero resale value. I just do not want to find myself in that position.
