Non-political: We're doomed, Captain Mainwaring

A glance at any of the review sites or forums will reveal that the E-M1x release is getting a complete hammering. It's a long time since I've seen such consistent negativity on a new launch. CAF once again under delivered (except for trains, planes and automobiles), EVF back in 2014 technology, no new sensor, same IQ, same rear screen, high price compared to competition, ...

I have to say I'm feeling pretty underwhelmed too. If they had launched an E-M5iii with the 20Mp sensor, hand held hi res, live ND and improved CAF then I'm sure we'd have all have been feeling pretty good and maybe putting in our pre orders. But this camera?...

The big question is, does this camera put m43 on a stronger footing or weaken it, or is it irrelevant to the long term picture?
