Apple, buy Leica.
and when the heck areCanon going to drop thename "REBEL", soundslike the title of some 70scheap pulp fiction novel
with the huge sales decline of dslrs alone, this is not thetime to relax quality control
bet Sony could produce a MF camera for 2500. and make a profit...do it Sony do it..... also a 4X5 for under 10Kthey can do that and will do that
at first glance, looks like a Brownie
Barnum was right
Samsung realizes that they must throw the kitchensink into their products in order to succeed.
I own the Acratech ball head and am very pleased
versatile, ultra light weight and strong
the camera looks wonderful, specs are fantastic, output not that impressive
perfect camera for 2005 along with cheapening the Pen line today
most still better than most we see today with $k dollars of equipment
just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic
Leica must be belly laughing
Make lenses on par with Leica athalf the price, should be doable.
aperture starts at F4, what an advance
Anastigmat: The 4/3 sensor was invented when sensors were very expensive. The smaller 4/3 sensor cost a lot less than APS-C sensors so it allowed 4/3 format manufacturers a much higher profit margin. Nowadays there is hardly any difference in cost between an APS-C and a 4/3 sensor. Even FF sensors are fast becoming commodity priced. That puts 4/3 format cameras at a disadvantage because they are destined to be low volume compared to the APS-C models, and the low volume forces the makers to raise prices above APS-C models. That means a smaller, noisier sensor must be sold at a higher price than a larger sensors with more pixels. For this reason, the 4/3 format is doomed, in much the same way that half frame 35mm film cameras were doomed.
even MF sensors are also more affordable now
place a MF sensor in a DSLR body and you have something,just wait n see Nikon and or Canon do it.
and still no articulated screen
the G3 had a viewfinder and that was like a hundred years ago
