Or let me put it another way -

When I start seeing posts from people using pro level nikon and canon gear say:

"Hey I switched to Oly and the quality is just as good or better and the weight is less so I'm happy"

then I'll believe they can compete. I haven't seen that anywhere.

Dave, that's why I used the word 'major'. A small paper may make that choice for budget reasons. They're not using those cameras because they think they're as good as a d3 or 1d.

Many newspapers issue entry level P&S cameras to their reporters so they won't have to take a photographer out with them all the time.

And newspapers, especially smaller newspapers,have a greater tolerance for lower image quality than major newspapers, magazines, etc.
