Until an actual M43 product is available with the feature, any tech feature that are in other cameras are of little value. That's happened many times before, when sensors with more than 12MP first appeared (Why would anyone need 16MP?), And then with 20MP, 24 MP (Tiny pixels ruining IQ/DR), PDAF, BSI (Only works for phones and 1 inch cameras), stacked sensors. People argue for years about how much value they are to M43 users, and then as soon as something is in a M43 camera, ... Wow!

All true. But double readout speed aint no joke.

Of course every little bit of improvement helps, even the tiny 1/3 stop improvement from BSI, as they all add up and they are very important when your sensor is already smaller and updated less frequently than competitors. Getting the latest leading edge sensor is critical for survival, when the time comes for an update (which is about once every 5 years for M43). So, let's hope we are about to get something more interesting, now that another update is due for M43.
