jacek2008: Wonder if Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift can beat this not quite medium format Hassy;)

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.

In reply to:

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.

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.

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

tkbslc: I always thought most of the fun of Instagram was seeing what people could do with smartphone cameras. Posting from high end cameras kind of spoils the charm. Not that people haven't been doing it for a while, it is just that once the balance shifts too far, it might as well be flickr.

I don't think that is weird, but Instagram is an odd choice for quality image sharing due to the image and viewing size restrictions. Even when viewing from a PC, you can't seem to zoom in farther than a 1000x1000 pix square on your monitor.

eya1: Pricing is not much more than pro Canikon bodies and lenses but IQ is probably through the roof . Will this be a mirrorless game-changer? It will be interesting to see the long-term effect this technology has on the camera industry as a whole.

All I need is a whole lot of money; a whole lot of processing power and, a whole lotta Rosie!!!

It's only 1.27x larger. I wouldn't expect miracles.

JeremiahL: I'm actually shocked this hasn't existed up until now.

I haven't used LightRoom in a couple years, but back then there were plugins to process images and upload directly to Flickr and SmugMug from within LR. It really took this long to add Instagram?!?

It was supposed to be for mobile photographers. I think they are finally giving up, but I think the core user base is beginning to leave as a result.

Jostian: Arrgghh!! iPhone 7 to have a Sony sensor... really hope they get the processing sorted this time round so we don't have the disappointment that is the 6S (which also uses a Sony sensor) in terms of IQ, massive NR and no detail....

Who isn't using a Sony sensor?
