Yes... however, the purpose of a forum is to "discuss" (don't take that as a snark - it isn't). You can take fine pix with any camera, 4/3rds no exception. But technical merits do matter when investing in a kit that will wind up costing a grand when all is said and done. Hence the discussion. Regarding selective focus/IQ, an APS-C sensor is as small as I'm willing to begrudgingly go regarding film plane size. The film plane size effects things that matter to me with respect to photography. This is also true regarding framing using a viewfinder.
