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.

My initial though was that this article was right on point, then I thought about the EM5 series, the EM10 series, the EP/EPL series and the 12-45 and 12-50, the 40-150 F4.0-5.6 , Panasonics 12-35, 12-35, heck even the 12-60 f3.5 lenses...

The PRO offerings expand , not replace the smaller offerings
