As I read the news about this camera (and its future competitors) a few thoughts came to mind.
This won't be replacing my DSLR gear, but it may well be the ultimate image-stabilized, autofocusing, picture and video capable small telescope (50x optically, 200x digitally).
I'll probably wait a bit for the dust to settle and for its competitors to come out, and then I may well get one for that purpose: extreme magnification with side benefits.

Octane: Funny, I just bought and used one of those yesterday. Very useful and helpful to get the exact exposure in different situations.

The one drawback I could see was due to the polarizer. The sky was getting really dark towards one corner of the image. Landscape photographers need to be careful.

Also, to blur the blades of wind turbines, regardless of the rotation speed.
