    3:2 is closer to the golden ratio of 1.618 than 4:3. But I'd be
    interested in an 1:1 square digital so that I can shoot faster, without
    worrying about camera orientation.
    Olympus do not want a 35mm full frame sensor. They gave up 35mm SLR.
    They have disadvantage to compete with others on 35mm full frame SLR.
    They have to make new lenses if they want to come back to 35mm SLR. So
    they chose a new standard that's not directly competing. Small sensor
    also has advantages.
    200/2.8 should be much lighter, smaller, and cheaper than 400/2.8.
    Olympus should offer prime lenses, 10/2.8, 20/1.4, 40/1.4, 100/2,
    200/2.8, at competitive prices, about $200 to $600.

    Better yet, Minolta and Pentax can support 4/3 by making some lenses,
    and/or cameras, with anti shake, TTL flash, high speed X sync, etc.
    This would make all three of them to be able to compete better against
    Canon.
