They could. But probably won't devote equal efforts to both systems. Have to imagine L Mount will now receive a large majority of Panasonic's attention, if not a complete attention monopoly.Come on now, are you trying to say that Fuji can afford 2 systems but Panasonic can’t? Lol.
Agreed. Panasonic could afford to lose a billion per year on M43 if they so decided. But doubt that will be their decision.Panasonic is as big as Sony, and even more diversified. They will be fine no matter what they decide.
I honestly can't imagine being a CEO of any diversified company right now and trying to justify continuing in the camera business.
I would not be surprised to hear of ANY system being discontinued, even one of the FF.
You mean I could share my woodworking and metalworking videos here? I can even tie them into photography, this was a small project of mine form a little while ago.Woodworking talk? Maybe instead of opening the site up to all cameras, we should just open it to ALL hobbies?
Throw out Sigma for us Nikon users, if you are a sports/action shooter. The zoom ring turns in the opposite direction, which is really a PiA if you shoot any action and rely on muscle memory. I used a Sigma once, I kept turning the zoom ring the wrong way and lost shots.I don't know, I found the lens selection for Nikon and Canon APS-C DSLR to be quite amazing. You just have to get your lenses from Tamron, Tokina and Sigma. ADmittedly, wide primes are a rarity, but now they have f1.8 and f2 zooms starting at 20mm equivalent.
I did some work for a guitar Luther? his understanding of various woods and how they make the guitar sound was quite awe inspiring.I could add photos of violin work (making & repairs etc) too, but with any craft, it isn't just about the tools, but also understanding the subject material. E.g. photography: light, composition ........ (& many more aspects), woodcraft: many things including appearance, wood hardness, grain, stability (seasoning included) & the uses for it. It becomes fairly involved with musical instruments (violins etc), because acoustical properties are an essential part of it. Anyhow, what was this thread about again?
What Google and Apple are doing with computational photography is (almost) unique to them. Most of the other phone companies are years behind. The camera companies look to be years further afield.The 2 most important words in Tony's video were " computational photography " ... when " computational Photography " brings M43 IQ near or equal to TODAYS FF
True, I did not consider the 3rd party manufacturers. I was just thinking of the OEMs. But, still that tells you something. CNS did not make the effort to fill out their APS-C lines, and TTS saw the opportunity and filled it. But, you know, a lot of the TTS lenses are for FF.I don't know, I found the lens selection for Nikon and Canon APS-C DSLR to be quite amazing.

Now that Sigma have the dock available for fine tuning front /back focusing & lens calibration, I'd be half tempted to have another go at APS-C. That was the thing that pushed me over to m4/3 (lack of standard/wide primes) Fuji gets it. 14mm, 18mm, 23?mm, 27mm, 35mm, 56mm, all my favourite focal lengths. Curious to see what the XT30 bringsYou just have to get your lenses from Tamron, Tokina and Sigma.

Agreed.Tony Northrup's words, whether he intends them to be or not, have consequences.
The new panasonic organic sensor and Global shutter could be the start of a sensor arms race, so sensor prices could just as easily skyrocket.If sensors were still the massive portion of the bill of materials that they were a few years ago, believe he would be wrong. But sensor prices appear to have dropped sharply. So making an M43 camera that includes the same processor, RAM, IBIS, magnesium frame, buttons, weather sealing and software development might only reduce the cost by 10% to 20% below that of a full frame mirrorless version.
