Size matters, doesn't it?

Hi Charles,

Yes, on purely a capability level, there's no reason a good DSLR can't be smaller than a Canon 1D. What I hear Olympus shooters saying is that the camera needs to be larger than a Pen or OM-D to balance and grip the larger SHG lenses. A few, me included, don't like an intermediate adapter adding an interface mount and the smaller mount flange diameter. It's inherently weak. We also want all the access buttons and larger exposure dials. Anyone that's tried to operate a camera in the cold with gloves on can appreciate that.
