I think we all agree that the Q mount needs a larger sensor.
I agree with Don that I am already a happy camper and in no rush for something radically new.
To get into the 4/3 consortium Ricoh needs to want to make the move and Olympus and Panasonic have to agree. Not sure that even Pentax/Ricoh wants to share a cave with a bear. Ricoh has survived as a camera company by exploiting niche areas. It cleverly stayed out of making their very own dslr and when the bear moved into their GX model's territory Ricoh shut the GX model down perhaps because they didn't want a hug friendly or otherwise. So the theory is that Ricoh will get some M4/3 customers moving over? I am sure that the bear will soon enough find a way to get the business back again. Could get ugly.
They already own a small format mount called the Q mount and it remains to be seen just how large a sensor it will talk to.
Meanwhile a small fixed clip on evf that can be left semi-permanently on camera without worrying on what it might snag next? More buffer, better designed, to allow better continuous shooting? If the buffering needs a new back then consider scrapping the inbuilt flash and replacing it with an evf?
FF sensor - when they are ready, no rush.
