Recently I visited New Mexico and shot fall colors with my E-330 and Fujica 670 medium format film camera. As usual I was very happy with my E-330 performance and images it produced. But the scanned 6x7 negative at 18 MB produced a beautiful image with plenty of detail that really impressed me. It got me thinking about Olympus and its limitations with the 4/3 sensor and purchasing a camera with a larger sensor.

I believe Olympus has the technical skill to create a first class camera that can easily capture a larger market share, but only if they abandon the 4/3 sensor and create a full frame sensor camera.

I recommend you look for a camera company that can provide you a camera with a larger sensor with 1-2 excellent lens in their lineup that you would be happy with.

There are many reasons to go big (and I assume you mean 35mm), but to get IQ better than the E-330 is not one of them. You can do that with almost every DSLR and mirrorless camera produced in the past 2 years.

Cheers,

Seth
