I wish Olympus would produce a 4/3 mirrorless with "FF"ish sensor.

Transparent-K-1 and Split-In-Two-K-1 in this photo set.

EDIT: Oh, I see the front page has it covered.

they are a bit overkill for cropped but quality fall off is a bit too much with FF
Are you suggesting the FA limited lenses are not suited for full frame?

I was actually thinking of the 50/1.4 and 35/2 when I wrote this. From what I can see so far, the FA Limited series will do quite OK from an image perspective, but more than likely not from a test chart.

Bit naughty of you to suggest that I would be critical in any way of the FA Limited line , the only issue I would have with any of them is that the 31 is a bit front heavy, and difficult but not impossible to fit a square filter system to and that the gorgeous 77 likes purple too much. Minor quibbles really

What's going to break first, the LCD or the camera mount?

My beloved 43ltd always gets into trouble in reviews due to its field curvature. It appears the concept of measuring corner sharpness when focused in the corner is beyond the average reviewer. Of course if reviewers bothered to measure microcontrast it would start making pentax lenses look good.

Would 4:3 be the sweet spot for current FA's? i.e. they are a bit overkill for cropped but quality fall off is a bit too much with FF
It may be something as simple as cross polination. A year or so I read an interview with a Ricoh rep where he talked about the sharing of items between Ricoh and Pentax cameras. Shortly thereafter the GR got the Pentax TAv mode. The GR has three selectable aspect ratios of 3:2, 4:3, and 1:1. If the K1 has these it may be another example of sharing. I wonder what other software and hardware bits may be shared across Ricoh and Pentax models.
