    Will their lenses be able to keep up with the pixel pitch? They'll
    need dead-sharp optics for that thing, if it actually comes out.
    Olympus "kit" optics are very good, for kit lenses but it looks like
    anyone buying the E-3 will need to use the pro optics to maximize the
    resolution.
    14 megapixels at 4/3rds is like having a FF with around 50 megapixels.

  2. You might want to check out my updated page:

    In particular, see Figures 6 and 7, which are new.
    They might make one rethink wanting all those small pixels.

    Isn't that a lot like asking, "If a frog had wings, would it still bump
    its butt when it landed?"

    Well regardless of any details, you'll never have one.

    I've got the E-1. If the E-3 comes out I'll get it.

    I wonder why you don't aspire to a proper camera?

    That's a loaded question. To some people, the only proper camera is a
    Canon.
    To some Canon owners, the only proper camera is a FF Canon.
    Some people would never waste their time with a DSLR and they'd go
    right to
    a 39 megapixel medium format. On the bottom end, where is the cut off
    point?

    I haven't been at the bottom end of digital photography since my first
    digital, a Kodak DC280, bought for personal use when I was a medical
    photographer using film. To this day my best camera remains my Fuji GX680,
    for which I'm now interested in the digital back. THAT will be a proper
    digital camera. Meanwhile I continue to get great digital results from my
    FF Canons.
