Thoughts on Canon's new m43 challenger
6

Recently a surprising number of our club members have been ditching their FF gear and moving to OMD (olympus). They either no longer want to carry the weight of FF gear when hiking, or want the 2x focal length benefits for wildlife.

The new R7 is a 32mp aps-c crop sensor and retails for around $1500, I now see it as quite a threat to that m43 growth market. As people will be able to use much smaller lenses to get the same reach.  And with Canon's lightweight 800mm prime it will offer an inexpensive reach of over 1200mm effective.

What are others thoughts on this threat to m43 in general?
