Gimmick... (my post on the News forum)
In reply to joamessner, Nov 10, 2009

For the serious photographer ? Please.

This is at first take a bad idea, novel indeed, but a bad idea that will fade rapidly into history as being too much the gimmick.

Any form of APS (or even 4/3) sized "unit" will be too large to be of daily use and the one body will become outdated and boring in a year or two.

The only chance this "system" has really, and it is a big IF, is that new bodies are aimed at more semi-professional or enthusiast use. I can faintly see larger faster bodies and an assortment of interchangeable lens units and compact bodies might be a gimmick worth it for some, but still few.

Nah, on third thought, I stand by my original evaluation.
