WolfyWho: This is what Fuji should do with their X100 line (been wishing on that for a while). Three different bodies with 3 different lenses. I'd carry 3 X100's, each having a different focal length (35, 50, 85 in 35mm equiv), and never have to change lenses again.
If it were an absurd idea - then by that rational, carrying around multiple prime lenses when 1 zoom lens can fulfill your needs - would be absurd. And yet its not because primes are perceived as sharper. Ah, but would not a prime lens matched to a sensor be even better? - yes. So it's not so absurd. It's logical. Maybe not practical, but it is logical.
I thought so too. I think it's a good business model for people that don't mind it. It's more like lenses with sensors rather than a body with fixed lenses. And the great thing is, each lens can be configured for its own settings. I think that Sony should do the same and release a RX2 and RX3 with fixed lengths.
RedDog Steve: A cease-fire in the pixel wars ?
I think it'll happen. A few years ago it was MHz wars, who was faster, Intel or AMD, PowerPC - PC or Mac? But now that doesnt seem to make a much space on a brochure. And now I think that the pixel count will level off.
camera lucida: How does the update work with OSX? The Camera does not show on my Mac when connected :-(
Don't worry, the FPUPDATE program will find it. And at least this update won't yack and spit like Sony's a55 Firmware v2, just because of a 64-bit kernal.
