"The camera will take current MFT lenses via adapter"

That does not make a lot of sense. MFT lenses have a much smaller image circle, so to compensate for that the camera would have to introduce a 2x crop. And that means 2x in both directions, so you end up with 25% of the original number of pixels...

I agree. Making m43 lens work with FF bodies is better than getting a sharp stick in the eye....but just barely better. I don't see any real world benefits. You want to use m43 glass you already own....great.....stick it on a GH5 or E-M1 II.
