It's too bad sub-FF lenses are treated like second-class lenses by mfgs

    Because ultimately, they have the potential to exceed FF when it comes
    to resolution. FF lenses would be just too expensive to maximize
    their potential. In sub-FF, probably the lenses that have come
    closest, or have exceeded top-not FF are the Olympus SHG units,
    especially when it comes to edge definition. So now we have 24
    megapixel APS sensors and 18 megapixel M4/3rds sensors, we could
    eventually see really good quality glass made just for them. In the
    meantime, you can adapt Olympus SHG's to M4/3rds.

    You haven't even answered my immediately prior question, about YOUR
    qualifications, and you go off pontificating again.
