Re: Not sure why 32Mp wouldn’t be okay...

Back in 2004, I used to shoot digital with an Olympus C-8080, which was an 8Mp 2/3 sensor camera (CCD sensor). At low ISO (50) the images were fine.

I still have my C-8080 , though it is in a box up in the loft of doom. As you say at low ISO it could give very decent results

Given the 4/3 sensor has 4x the area of a 2/3 sensor, along with the advances in sensor tech since 2004, I would imagine that image quality from a 32Mp 4/3 sensor would look fine, at least at base ISO.


Cheers Kevin
