So, is this true?  Using FT / mFT users as a test, do you understand "the impact of sensor size on image quality"?  What was your knowledge of this topic at the time you made your purchase decision of the cameras you are now using?  How did your purchase decision go in regards to this?

Number 1. I bought into 4/3 years ago with the Oly E-300 because it had a dust buster that worked, whereas all the competition spent all their time swabbing away madly, and still do it seems.

Number 2. I wanted to wait for 8MP as a minimum to start for a system camera and the 8MP of the Oly was great.

Number 3. The increased 4/3-M4/3 DOF suits me fine for what I do, in fact the often too  shallow DOF of 35mm film days was a pain in the you-know-what at times.

Number 4. Now using E-PL5 and I never originally realised that M4/3 could ever be this good.

Number 5. Dang me this two body five lens kit is so light that I never notice it on my shoulder.

Number 6. I drive a 13 year old Subaru manual shift, does that tell you anything? I could afford a Rolls-Royce, but why?

Please post your replies and thoughts on this topic, I could use feedback urgently.

What's the urgency? We will still be here tomorrow and the day after singing the praises of M4/3 in our own little world.

Thank you!

No problemo!

Regards...... Guy
