Does anyone know if Canon will be introducing a smaller camera body such as the Olympus Pen, Lumnix etc ?

I think it's only a matter of time before Canon & Nikon start to produce these sort of cameras. They are selling really well worldwide; I'm sure they will not want to be left behind. It is rumoured that Nikon are already planning one for release early next year.

There`s also this Nikon rumour, if true it will be very similar to the new Pentax system and using a small digicam. sensor.

A lot of interesting comments on dof with regard to size of sensor in that article Paul.

Although its claimed a tiny digicam sensor will be used there saying it will have a crop factor of about 2.6.

But of course there will be no crop factor at all, the lenses will be designed for this camera and sensor, a little like 4/3 or M4/3, a crop factor only really comes into play if using a lens designed for 35mm.

An interesting article ( have you got a Lite boy ) and in the third paragraph commenting on the Olympus PEN Lite E-PL3 with regard to quote' pleasing blurry backgrounds'

So, when using the kit lens on PEN, there is no crop factor of 2x?

'Crop factor' has become a multi-purpose term. Strictly it is appropriate when using lenses with a larger image circle than necessary for the size of the sensor.

But more loosely, it has become a way to compare with so-called full-frame cameras, i.e. with 36mm x 24mm sensors.

Not really no, these lenses are designed from the ground up, there only comparing these lenses to 35mm.

I am confused.
So, when using 14-42 on pen, you get wider angle compared to when using 17-40 on 5d2?

No, because its not really a 14-42.

In that case, what is it then?
