But bigger than a Nikon sensor.
But smaller than a different Nikon sensor.
And even smaller than the other Nikon sensor.
But it's bigger than a Pentax sensor.
Although smaller than a Pentax sensor.........
I think you've got the hang of this.

Ciao ... John
Yeah, half plate cameras (4.25 x 6.5) were often adapted to take 5"x4" film holders.

Plate cameras date from the days when the emulsion was coated on glass plates.

Well technically as the E-System was designed from the ground up around the 4/3 sensor it's also full frame.
