It will be very interesting to discover how well the new smaller sensors perform given the press perception of noise problems assoiciated with the current four thirds format.

Interesting times!

Chris, I don't know if I misinterpreted you, but the Micro Four Thirds platform shares the same size sensor as the existing Four Thirds system.
