Four thirds was the common mount adopted by some companies. Nowadays we don't hear about four thirds, the "standard" 1/4 is Micro Four Thirds.
In my opinion (for the photographers benefit) / dreams (these companies will never-ever do this) Nikon and Canon should embrace the E mount for their FF. And slowly FF will become Micro Full Frame analogous to FT->MFT. Then will be a real competition (read: on the same grounds) between lenses and bodies. Nikon and Canon could focus at the beginning on the cameras, and then introduce lenses.
Oh, and cameras SHOULD switch from SD to SSD, of course.

Since Oct 16, 2013 it's like 3 and a half years. How many companies had a complete FF system in such a short time?

Noblesse oblige. Use meaning no.2 :
"The Dictionnaire de l'Académie française defines it thus:

Between 2008-2013 they had around 16 camera models per year. They won't come with more than one NEW camera model per month. It sounds fair to me (although I'm really not interested in less than FF)

In reply to:

Ebrahim Saadawi: Since mosr phones are 28mm equivalent, and dince the image quality is quite poor, I really do see better 28mm photographs from an Iphone or Samsung or others. Very boring look coupled with low IQ makes a boring image list.

I can get markedly higher quality images from my 60D + 28mm prime. And there's a 24mm pancake if we went that argument of size.

whose low IQ you're talking about?

My understanding was that you don't go with an iPhone to shoot a wedding, so you need at least a canon or nikon.
But I see what you're talking about: a wedding photographer needs another photographer as equipment ... pretty cool figure of speech.
