ditto viewfinder and DOF. I looked through a MF camera for the first time (Leaf back on a Mamiya) and the image display was *huge*...and you could actually clearly see the DOF for focusing. It was amazing...

That said, can't beat APS-C for sports which is why I don't think it'll be an either or but a both answer...

I think the VF can be fixed. The Viewfinder on the Oly E3 is pretty big because it's magnification is 1.15. It's really pretty good considering the size of the sensor.

I realize that I may be in the minority, but I actually prefer more DOF, so 1.5x-2x crop cameras are fine for me.
