True but..

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
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
to keep this advantage.

At that pixel density one can shoot in only bright light. For birds in flight and other wildlife where lower light is the norm, one must put up with the full-frame weight penalty in order to get the image quality required for top quality images.
