Do you all think it will be before a pinhead sensor camera can produce an image like this at 100% crop. Do you think we will even get there? (Joms.... don't click on that link, it will make you sick with envy... as it did me.)

100% crop from the middle 1/16th of the frame - D800

Nikon AF - One Shot ..... One Kill

I think the question should be:

"How long do you think cams that now use pin head sensors will have full frame sensors in them and produce images like this?"

My answer to this would be "much sooner than many think" but maybe not with the full zoom ranges as now...

A full frame sensor will drive costs of the whole kit to above $2000 ... because a body and two lenses of similar reach today would cost about 4 grand. And are huge and heavy.

There is no way to make a bridge camera with the stunning range they have today with FF sensors ... the laws of physics deny it.

But ... pushing the X-S1 up to a 1" sensor might be possible and still get to, say, 500mm ...
