Bigger is better in photography. It was true in the past and it is true today. If Olympus would have the chance to start again they clearly would do so with a bigger sensor. They are stuck now because they would upset their users invested in their lenses.

I'm not talking about high ISO and dynamic range only. I'm talking about the option to create images with a shallow depth of field.

Full frame will always be ahead of APS-C and APS-C will always be ahead of m43. m43 will be always better than 1 inch, ...

I'm happy when Fuji finally brings out the lenses that are on the roadmap and eventually update the XP1.

I walked away from m3 for four reasons:

1. Relatively poor dynamic range - blown highlights were unavoidable in many situations. This has been improved quite a bit, but can still problematic.

2. Poor high iso performance. Greatly improved, but still lags behind APS-C.

3. A less useful range of DOF flexibility. Will never change.

4. The very inconvenient 2X crop factor. Will never change.

I loved the cameras and loved the lenses, but the overall experience was one of major compromises that became irksome to me.

But hey, each to their own.

FF is not a magic format either. In many cases APS-C is the most convenient option, even if the FF format is ultimately the best re IQ and resolution.
