There have been trolls but there also have been some genuine concerns about the direction and future of the format.

It is not about people who already buy into the system, but how m4/3 can compete in the new market when other systems with much larger sensors are getting smaller and cheaper. People who want "a smaller but just as good" system now have many good choices. Make no mistake about it, we are stuck with the 20 M sensor. It is not just about cropping, but also about dynamic range and noise. Image processing capability which affects video and AF performance, on and on ... As the m4/3 customer base continues to contract, it will be difficult to even order the 20 M sensor at a volume that is cost-effective, let alone expecting SONY to develop a newer sensor for us.

This current Olympus management team are too budget obsessed to risk paying for new technology. I say bring back the team that presided over their accounting scandal. I bet if that lot couldn’t have afforded a new high res sensor they would have just upscaled the files in camera and pretended it was a new sensor
