In reply to Godfrey, 6 months ago

I shot Canon for many years from film through the D30 (first "affordable'" DSLR) to 5D.  I often cropped to 4:3/3:4 for printing/presentation.  Many years ago, briefly, I had an E10 but went back to Canon system and still cropped as applicable for 4:3.  I started m4/3 with the G1 and happily accepted the format with no reservations.  I just like it and also often crop to 1:1.

I always found 3:2 a pain for printing LOL,  Noticed above someone mentioned not being able to print large prints from m4/3.  Quite a number of years ago I shot for 18 24x36 with a D60 which AIR was 8 mp, high ISO issues and I shot action in a furniture plan.,  Granted I had a graphics firm tweak and print after i processed from RAW and they were viewed at a distance, but I have many large prints from my earlier DSLRs that work well for normal viewing distances.  I certainly find my prints from my EM5 even far better.
