I used to have an Olympus E-10, with a 2/3" ccd, and now use a D100 with a nearly APS sized sensor (about 2.5x larger sensor area than 2/3"). From my experience this larger sensor is is more sensitive to blue than was the 2/3", allows for much higher ISO equivalencies (up to 6400 ISO, very little noise up until ISO 1250), and the larger sensor area produces shallower depth of field (great for portraits and other creative work).
