Limited series of monochrome DSLR from another brands - why not? But only Leica did it. Interesting idea.
chillgreg: Does the pixel shift technology mean that this camera can emulate a Foveon sensor's output?
No any sense in such lens at all....
ogl: Such system with 1" sensors needs faster lenses. 3.5-5.6 is no good at all.
No any fast zooms at all.

8.2 works slower than 8.1.
GR and Q are Ricoh's mirrorless. It's reasonable lines of cameras.
ogl: Is it real that all 51 points has EV -3? I have doubts...
I can't find info here that all 51 points are EV -3.The video above says that not all points are EV -3, that's why one upper left point can't lock focus in the bad light.
Give me proof, please, from official data-sheet.

ogl: 42.5/1.7 = 85/3.4 for 35 mm system.....It's slow lens.
maybe...I don't know English very good.
The speed is not changed, of course. But it's unreal to put this lens to FF. :) DOF is the same as 85/3.4 at FF. That's why it's slow lens for 4/3 system. There is no 85/3.5 lens for FF. Crop 2 never reach FF and hardly reach APS-C.
In terms of DOF - it's the same as 85/3.4 Educate yourself.

ogl: Nikon with real 36 MP is far better than 40 MP mode from crop 2.
There is AA filter simulator for moire. It's not problem in real life at all. This test is the photo of printed material on the wall. It's not real shooting. It's laboratory test. Nobody make photos of such objects in real life. Maybe it's good for museums? Maybe...
Did you ever seen landscape moire from cameras without AA filter? :)))
This technology could be used only for stationary objects with tripod. It's scanner, to the point. Only JPEG has some advantages. RAW is useless now. And it's useless for real shooting.
No moire? I don't think it's advantage. I don't see that moire is problem. No AA filter is advantage. High resolution.
OK - have a look at http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/4949987532/photos/3146999/comp2
is it good photo from Olympus? It's really bad.
We can't compare with another cameras, because there are no 40 MP APS-C cameras.
