4/3 has no focal length advantage-correct him if he is wrong

pixel density does the trick

It's the pixel density rather than the FOV multiplicator that gives the
useful extra reach. So he'd need 17 Mp on a Nikon APS-C to match
your 10 Mp camera in reach using lenses with same focal length. The Canon
50D does match your E-520 since it's 15Mp on a slightly smaller sensor than
the Nikon. But when the E-30 comes out, an Oly will again be alone in
having the most "reach" of any DSLR.

I think Oly/Panny should push the pixel density, at least on some models,
to keep this advantage.
