As an enthusiast the camera market is depressing.

The 2/3 sensor size was great. New ones would be useful

I had the Canon Pro-1 and the Olympus C-8080.

I wanted the Sony F-828 but never got round to owning one. A modern one with BSI sensor fast autofocus and 1080p video would be amazing.

  • Carl Zeiss T* 28 - 200 mm equiv. (7x zoom) F2.0 - F2.8 Mechanically linked zoom lens
  • Dual memory card slots
  • Metal body with top LCD

Even upgrade the size a bit and stick a 1" sensor in it.

It is doubtful we will see this, or any other risky projects while all camera makers are loosing money.  We are lucky the camera companies are not run by western managers who only look a few quarters ahead and will cut / close money loosing business units.
