Nikon D3s VS Olympus EPL-1

Comparing images from the full frame Nikon D3s with Olympus half frame EPL-1, I was very surprised that a camera that costs $5k (body only) cannot compete with a camera that costs $399 (including a zoom lens) regarding image resolution.

Please note, we are talking about resolution only, not IQ, so any comments like high ISO performance, built quality, weather sealing and so on is not related to this topic.

As we know both cameras has 12MP sensor, so we don't need to up size or downsize crops.
the difference is really huge, make a look and judge your eyes.
