Why are '35mm full-size' sensors so expensive?
If Ricoh made a full-size 35mm back (module) for their system, I would be a very happy bunny! I would then be able to use my Zeiss Contax G lenses (or maybe my Zuiiko f/1.4 50mm lens) with a digital imaging system.
No, i don't want the 'advantage' of a longer effective focal length by using APS-C or whatever; most of my work is done in wide angle - the wider the better (other than for portraits)
why is it such a labour of love (or money) to get something which is confirgured for a full-frame 35mm system? Or even a 24x24mm system (aka the format made famous by Rollei and Hasselblad)?
OK, i know digital imaging systems like the lenses to be telecentric; but I am told there exists software to cope with the vignetting whcih one might encounter
