I just don't think that's enough to ensure that M43 will be viable (outside of Japan anyway, where apparently it was the most popular mount last year) moving forward.

People shouldn't be opposed to 8K cameras. As the R5 and now the A1 show, the best thing Panasonic could do to improve a MFT sized sensor image is to aim for 8K and use the extra resolution to downsample a superb 6K, 4K, and 2K image with less noise and more DR from cleaner shadows. Offer 8K open gate 4:3 anamorphic which no one is doing in mirrorless. But the single biggest thing Panasonic could do to sell their cameras is: Offer reliability Phase Detect AF with face and eye tracking. DfD is stigmatized no matter how much they improve it. FF mirrorless has really taken huge leap in performance in the past 2 years. I'm not sure MFT has a place anymore and I really loved my MFT cameras. I just don't know what they could make, besides a Sony A1 at 1/4 the cost, that would sell. As a MFT fanboy for many years, Panasonic would do better to focus entirely on FF and fix their AF and compete on their excellent feature while bringing in more cinema level features and color. It's the only way they will stay relevant in the shrinking market. MrSMW 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
