they want the Sony and the Canon back

Why? Those are still excellent cameras and millions of wonderful photos have been made with both and are still being made?

And it is amazing to me that the little m4/3 sensor is as good or better than those FF sensors from not long ago.

Yes, I know camera geeks always need a new fix to get high. But for most of us having smaller, lighter gear that has sensors that are as good or better than what FF cameras not so long ago had is a dream. I shot 35mm film for decades so I have been very happy with digital, even small sensor digital such as my 2002 5mp Minolta D7i, for many years.

i have no problems with old cameras, but comparing something from 2016 to something 8 years before on DXO.......is it progress? I mean if you needed that performance in 2008 then i suppose you'd be using one of those models

The comparison makes a lot of sense to me.

The comparison makes little sense if your goal is to compare currently available models.

However, if your goal is to identify models that can achieve a certain IQ, and that IQ was achieved in 2008 with those FF cameras, then knowing that current M4/3s models can meet that criteria is very useful.

it shows that sensors in m4'3rds have finally caught up with 2008?
