a) If you don't miss the "bigger" - aka, "more professional" - formats/systems

b) How was your adaptation going from 3:2 to 4:3

TIA and WYW,
Best regards,


I don't miss larger formats at all. I think there have been only a few occasions were I think I would have settled for some better isolation of my subject knowing full frame would have served me better on those rare occasions. Apart from that I don't miss large format. I can print up to A2 and prints look stunning. I don't feel the need for extensive cropping. I rather like to frame it from the start.

Adaptation to 4:3 does not apply to me. I still like to shoot 3:2. My OM-D let me set 3:2 and the rear display LCD is 3:2 also. Sometimes I try 4:3. It does let you frame subjects better but for landscaping I prefer 3:2.
