Two early morning images, one from an X30, one from a rented LX100. So is MFT the largest of the small sensor cameras, or smallest of the large sensor cameras? :D

The smallest of the large sensor cameras, Tony.

I've found that any smaller sensor size runs into insurmountable problems within a 'normal' shooting envelope.

There is also the lens quality and availability problem with sensors smaller than FTs and mFTs.

e.g. at ISO 6400

[Edit]

BTW, for those unfamiliar with the mFTs system, this photo was taken with my 16 MPx E-M1 MkI with its noisy Panasonic sensor, and the not very well regarded 12-50 macro kit lens.

Another Fujifilm X30 - and premium compacts in general - fan here. Often I take all my mu43 gear on holiday, and use the X30 most of the time! I really enjoy using it, and it's small enough to never be a bother. It gets me closest to the feeling of nostalgia I crave in my general travel photos.
