"Is Olympus throwing away its biggest advantage?" - article

https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/news/is-olympus-throwing-away-its-biggest-advantage

I feel like this article is like 2-3 years overdue, but it sure hammers on what I mentioned of keeping the size / advantage well defended vs not.

To be fair I think the EM5.3, EP7, EM10MKIV are cameras that put the size back along with the pro 12-45 F4.0.  Just linking the article for someone noting what has happened in m43rds development.  I don 'think it was just Olympus.

I really hope OMDS gets a chance to re-release the smaller primes in weather sealed form and maybe a tweak or two.  And perhaps 1-2 pro F1.4 primes.

The one thing I think the article doesn't focus as much is on the bodies. I still think the best m43rds body would be a pro level class EM5 one. Have an optional grip with more battery/ cpu power.

Anyhow- not to start any fights or anything- just found that someone wrote this now kinda interesting, though I think the article comes a bit late now.

By the way, he considers the new F4 12-25 Pro zoom big. I thought it would be smaller given there's the F2.8 version of it.  I get it has more range. Maybe it should have had the range of the F2.8 version and be smaller.  Still seems like a cool lens.
