One of the results is that work in galleries more than about three years old will not count; shame!
If we believe that it is not the equipment but how it is used then let us show the full range, why exclude members work who only have access to 4/3's kit?

I have in the past pushed to keep the idea of showing good work from galleries, but if this limit of micro work only is enforced I may look the odd time but will not take part.

Don't worry Ed, that's not going to happen - see the thread I have just set up

I think ISO, as a more recent user of Olympus cameras, was overlooking the distinction between the Olympus DSLRs, which use the original Four Thirds standard, and the newer mirrorless cameras that are designated Micro Four Thirds. Essentially they are the same format, because the sensor dimensions and aspect ratio are identical.
