I don't know or care how well or badly Canon are doing compared to m43, but I gave up after 3(!) m43 cameras, because of the poor dynamic range. The sensors just aren't big enough.

I have never owned one but that is good information and that could be yet another reason.

First, why the obsession with m4/3s Richard?

Second, you know that the OM-D is intended to compete against the D7000 and similar class of DSLR. We've covered this in the past. Did you "forget".

Hmmm, dxomark has the 7000 and 7100 with a wider dynamic range than the OM-D. And the Pentax k5 iis is even better.

Third, you know the current M4/3 cameras have better DR than all Canon APS-C sensor cameras. Did you "forget" that too?

According to dxomark, the OM-D has a better dynamic range than the 7D so yes, you are correct the OM-D sensor is better than a four year old Canon design.

Feel better now? or are you getting a tad obsessive about Canon DSLRs?

If you look at DXO data, the E-M5 has a DR equal to that of the Canon 6D, which is a FF only six months old. Yes, the Nikon and Pentax have a better DR, because they are using the Sony sensor. But the fact that an MFT camera is able to reach the level of a highly regarded FF tells something too.
