quote: Both Nikon and Canon need to pull their collective heads out of their asses and offer a real MFT solution
quote: They don't want to because in doing so they'd not only have to compete with each other, but with Olympus, Panasonic and several small-name lens manufacturers that offer high quality products.
quote: You want slower contrast-detect autofocus? Really?
quote: There's no competition between Canon/Nikon and Olympus/Panasonic. The micro-4/3s guys have made excellent products, but no. Just no.
quote: Depends on what you want. There's about a stop of difference between APS-C and m43, in both light-gathering and DOF. m43 starts hitting diffraction right around f/5.6, whereas APS starts around f/8, giving a lot less control with otherwise equivalent gear.
quote: No, I don't think that's accurate at all. Both Canon and Nikon would be hurting their credibility and dominant positions if they adopted a third-party standard.
quote: M43 is great for those "moving up" from cell phones or compacts, but at the end of the day it really does only offer "less size and weight" with a pile of compromises to take into account. Don't get me wrong, there's a huge benefit to less size/weight, but to claim that the technical image or shooting quality is on par is completely bogus.
quote: The difference in sensor size between MFT and APS-C is a lot less relevant than the sensor's effective dynamic range coupled with the quality of lenses available.
quote: Both MFT and full-size DSLRs would benefit from having experienced companies like Canon and Nikon joining the fray and supporting this standard
quote: I was hoping that Canon would be able to stuff a full-frame sensor into their mirrorless line.
