It is really not a micro four thirds camera and we shouldn't be calling it by that name. It uses a four thirds inch sized sensor but it is not even a four thirds system camera. After years of being told that my GH2 was an "evil" (electronic viewfinder interchangable lens) camera and hearing "you know that's not really an SLR..." by Canon shooters I feel a bit justified in defending MFT's good name.
This camera can not use any MFT lenses or adapters and there is just nothing MFT about it. Since Panny is not likely to list the fact that the lens is non-removable in big letters anywhere, I'd rather not confuse people by implying that it is.
Panny will never call this camera MFT or m43 as that would be unbelievably deceptive (and wrong) and we shouldn't either.
Why would anyone ever want to use a Metabones Speedbooster on a large sensor camera? It basically would just make the image circle smaller than the sensor, right?
I believe that four thirds is the sensor size, not micro four thirds. MFT is a spec for a system that includes a lens mount with a shortened flange distance which is made possible by the mirrorless design.
Are there ANY m4/3 cameras without interchangable lenses?
Why are we calling this camera "MFT" if it doesn't have a lens mount?
