And I would like to know from our readers what they think about the folowing post from RiceHigh “If Size Really Matters, What’s the Meaning of Micro-4/3 Now?

Just my two cent…The Sony NEX-3(5) surprised us all with their compact size, but they also had to sacrifice the usability. Anyway, I am sure Panasonic and Olympus will soon release even smaller cameras…
