Photonhunter: Camera clearly aimed at reproduction and product photography? Now, does this mean that we will get the 50/2.8 macro in Nex E-mount too in the near future...?? ;-)
I have a friend who makes a living out of photographing art (mostly paintings) . That is what I mean by reproduction. I can see this could be his dream camera: Slightly compressed perspective of the focal length together with (what I presume will be) a very low distortion lens and the camera's very high resolving power on top, and there, you have a winning combo..

mike earussi: Actually, you don't even need tilt-shift lenses. Just combine focus stacking with pano stitching and you can use regular lenses. I do, and it works fine.
adegroot, I also shoot 3:1 panos using Nex7 & Zörk Panorama-shift adapter with Pentax MF lenses (this has two huge advantages over shift lenses:22mm shift each way=much higher resolution output & the fact that the lens is fixed to the tripod so you shift the body instead,eliminating parallax errors).I am interested in the DP2M though, due to it´s amazing IQ and resolving power. I would like to ask, if you don´t mind: what is the max output size after the stitch of the six frames, cropped and finished (I get panos aprox. 14,000 pixels wide shooting the body vertically), and what is the biggest print size you would feel confident about with final result. Finally, what is your estimation as to the resulting FOV coverage (Using my SMC Pentax-A 645 35mm F3.5 with the mentioned rig I get a coverage that is something between 21-24mm in 35 Full Frame terms, I find it very hard to compose with a wider FOV).
Thanks in advance for your kind reply.Best.
