What about us old farts who have tired of the heavy cameras and want lighter weight? I have a stable of Nikon (D800, D750, D2x) and even more heavy lenses that are so-called pro level which causes arthritis exacerbated by a broken wrist to be painful at best and unmanageable at worst. Not all of us are going back to heavier cameras. Everyone speaks as Oracles of the future but I fear they are as unsure of any future as I have become.
There is nothing to worry about the future of m4/3.

I think the biggest difference might be there aren't nearly as many old farts trying to be YouTubers as there are young 20 somethings?

I'm only 35, but for me it was important to buy gear that I would be willing to take with me, and not have to think "Uughhh, do I really want to lug around that obnoxious camera today?" I don't feel a need to compensate for something with my camera gear though :whistling:

So a pro printer didn’t see a difference between a FF sensor and a m4/3 sensor. Not at that size. I wonder how many of the naysayers print at all, let alone print that size.

I guess we can now go back to trying to improve the real weak link.

I'm pretty sure you quoted the wrong post. My only problem with that video is not one of the prints was based on a challenging situation for a camera.

No. Agreeing with you. You can carry a smaller system and printing big is not an issue. After all, I’m guessing that all the skeptics are regular printers. Lol.

I have seen m43 cameras in Currys/PC World in the UK, Jessops where they remain still seem to stock them. I don't tend to go in to camera stores as they are quite lacking where I seem to go.

But just think about all the ad money Tony got from his clickbait video. That’s what really matters.
Tony's counting his money and long forgot about the video and coming up with the next one...meanwhile everyone else is still talking about it. Someone posted it on FB Olympus group too...:026:

FF mania is alive and well... Tony posts, and the world is dumping the " Dead M43 Format ". Please send me all the corpses. I will pay postage and take care of burial fees. Meanwhile I will wait for a Fire Sale on some coveted M43 Glass.
