vbuhay: Does any body have the Flange Focal Distance of the new Lens mount - XCD? How sensitive is the AF sensor? - 2 to + 19 EV? Any Pancake lenses availability in the future?
Considering most medium format lenses have a flange distance of about 3 inches, I doubt you will have trouble adapting anything that will cover the sensor.
alcaher: 8k dollars?????!?????
$11,000 with a lens, really.
villagranvicent: Excellent review, down-to-earth without the recent over the top claims and headlines, seems like a solid performer but at a hefty price. I would love to see a real life comparison vs the FZ1000 or even vs m43 systems considering the cost is in the same ball park to see if paying twice the money is worthy.
Most of the functionality, but certainly not the image quality.
How many rolls could you have developed and scanned for the $9500 price difference between this and a Fuji GF670?
tkbslc: Is this really medium format? The frame size is 44x33mm. Common medium format film sizes are 60x45mm, 60x60mm and 60x70mm. Compared to those, this sensor has about a 1.4, 1.5 or 1.7x crop factor (based on the diagonal).
This is like APS-C Medium format and only a 1.27x larger diagonal than FF digital.
@DigiMatt - that's the problem. m4/3 to FF is a HUGE 2x diagonal and 4x by area difference. That's definitely noticeable.
This is 1.27x crop and 1.7x by area change. It's even less than going from m4/3 to APS-C. And you really need some careful side-by-sides to tell the difference there. That's more of a shoulder shrug than running home to mom.
57even: Landscape and location photographer's dream camera.
If you like the 35 or 70mm equiv. FL.
jacek2008: Wonder if Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift can beat this not quite medium format Hassy;)
"Somebody wondered - let's get him!"
capanikon: Looks great. Finally we can start moving away from the teensy so-called "full frame" format.
Meanwhile plenty of people are enjoying their 7x crop factor smartphones.
KonstantinosK: Wow indeed. Even the price seems reasonable compared to that Leica SL.
That's like saying rhinos look small next to elephants.
blurredvision: Why exactly is the price increase so dramatic for such small increase in sensor size?
No, 1.27x crop factor increase. Less than the difference between m4/3 and APS-C.
tkbslc: Where are the 700 posts complaining that the lenses are only f2.8 and f3.5 equivalent?
They changed the specs on me. The 90mm is actually an f3.2, not 4.5 as originally reported by dpreview. So I guess we are at f2.5 equiv on the 90mm.
If it doesn't matter, why do we have 900 post arguments about whether m4/3 12mm f1.4 is really an overpriced 24mm f2.8? Let's just ignore it and call them both 35mm format?
caver3d: No thanks. I'll just have to carry on with my meager Sony A7RII. Or maybe I can stick a Hasselblad label over my lookalike Pentax K-01. Pentax, you're ahead of your time.
Here's hoping it comes in mustard yellow like the Pentax.
jaygeephoto: I always hoped that my old Mamiya 7 would be reincarnated some day as a digital camera. Nice!
1.7x crop factor from 6x7 though. Might as well drop all the way to 2.1x crop and get an A7.
Conrad567: 1/2000 flash sync, would make using lenses wide open out doors a possibility. Anything faster than f3.5 would seem a waste in bright sunlight. I really think this was designed with wedding photographers in mind.
Is 70mm equivalent long enough for a wedding?
RedMangrove: I wish someone would be a game changer in naming cameras. How many X's, 1's, and D's do we need?
Since maybe 3 film cameras have been made in the past decade, I keep wondering why cameras still often have the "D for digital" naming.
ogl: The camera is Interesting to discuss, but the camera is useless for 99.9999% of users. :)
I think you'd take a few 9's off for the Nikon D7200. It's useless for only 99.9%.

OSDphoto: So what is the game and how did this change it?
Who is paying $25,000 for a Leica M body?
Here's my math: 55mm diagonal vs 43.2mm diagonal is a .79x crop factor. f3.5x0.79 = 2.75 and f4.5 x 0.79 = 3.54
