increasing synergy---a line that truly goes from entry level consumer up through top gear across multiple formats.

BTW, there is a pretty strong rumor that Canon may be looking at Medium Format.  If so, and the Sony rumor is true (and I think it is), we'd then have Canon, Sony, Pentax, Hassy, Mamiya all in that market, with different approaches, from around $5k to $26+ K.  That's a more well rounded market than the one that used to be just over $25K.  And good numbers of people plunked down money for the top end FF DSLR's when they cost more than the current Pentax DMF does.  If these things do happen, watch for Fuji to jump in the pool---they've got pleanty of experience with MF.

This won't be a huge market, but it's one that will allow for expansion and higher profits in an increasingly tight consumer market, with plateauing numbers.
