Olympus E30

Much as I love the neatness and compactness of Olympus'
DSLRs I wish the firm's designers would move away from
4/3rds sensors.
At last in their latest incarnation the E30 they have moved
to 12.3MP but that may well be the limit for this tiny sensor.
Come on guys lets have a full-frame or something to
challenge Canon and Nikon.
You did it more than three decades ago with the OM series
so why not in the digital age..............
Below is Olympus' puff about the newcomer:

"Art Filters, Multi Exposure, Wireless flash, Multi-aspect
Comfortable Live View thanks to high speed contrast AF
Free angle 2.7"/6.9cm HyperCrystal II LCDImage Quality

Built-in I.S. with max. 5 steps efficiencySpeed
High-speed 11-point fully-biaxial AF performance
Max. 5fps
