I believe the name change marks that a full frame K-1 is on the corner
would have been a better article if it was only a collection of quotes from Klein. He is quite clear when he expressed himself, why try to translate what he says? I am sure most of us are able to get something to takeaway ourselves.
psn: I would really love to see Sigma SD1 studio samples to compare with all these other cameras. Would have bought an SD1 if Sigma wasn't so stupid and greedy. Anyway, I still think the image quality of that sensor is the one to beat. Not Fuji, Olympus, Sony, or those other guys.
Damn it, Sigma, why do you have to suck! There are many more dumb@ss photographers like me out there. You can make money, just don't try to cheat us.
For now, I might get another NEX.
wow!, at base iso SD1 outresolves even D800
kemal erdogan: The Fuji site says that the 12MP sensor use the same technology as XPRO1 and X100S.
it is likely that the sensor is exactly the same APS-C sensor used in the X100S.
I come to this conclusion by the fact the X20 supports all of 9/16, 2/3, 3/4, 1/1 aspect ratios, which implies that the sensor is at least as large as the diameter of the image circle both in height and width.
Least costly option to achieve this is just to use a bit bigger sensor and I think Fuji took that path. Lower pixel count is also consistent with that possibility.
And, I am thrilled at the possibility of having the low light capabilities of Xpro1 in such a small camera
yes, indeed. The difference is surface area is much bigger than the pixel count. sorry my bad
OH, yes, I checked again the sensor sizes, 12MP vs 16MP warrants not that much difference in the surface area, the X20 pixel density must be higher but it is indeed possible to use a larger sensor on the front of a lens with a smaller image circle
