Re: 35mm Film is somehow optimal for digital sensors?

My original posts was frankly, a bit of a windup, but with a healthy does of truth in it. My comment quoted above is about ergonomics, and as someone who shoots professionally, where you need to be able to operate the camera quickly, reliably and flexibly in a whole number of situations, then I'm afraid nothing, and I mean NOTHING in MFT comes anywhere NEAR the performance of something like a D3 or 1DS3.

I don't disagree that some might call them 'bloated boat anchors', but as tools that get the job done, they are in a totally different class, and its MFT cameras that 'totally suck', and this is coming from someone who not only shoots those FF cams mentioned, but also shoots GH3 and EM5 along side. I love the small cameras for portability, but dear god are they miles behind the pro cams at the moment in a whole bunch of operational ways.

I suspect anyone who thinks otherwise really hasn't had to use a pro DSLR in anger.

I shoot events, and usually shoot short lens on one (24-70) and long lens on second one (70-200). The 24-70 is shot at f5.6 to 8.0. The FF advantage of two stops on DOF is negated as I can shoot at f2.8 on M43, at a lower ISO than the FF camera. I'll let you know how well the Olympus M-1 stacks up under the conditions I just outlined against my FF cameras. I do own a D3S, along with D700, D800, and D800E.
