Re: ok scanning backs but ,

Although MF backs might come down I suspect that the majority of R&D funding is looking at how to improve the image quality of 35mm or APS-C sized sensors. How can we get a decent high resolution sensor that does not use a Bayer filter? 3 CCD perhaps or a newer and better attempt at Foveon (or just serious money being thrown at Foveon).

The market for the noise free, super sharp 20 Mpixel 35mm or APS-C sensor is always going to be orders of magnitude bigger than for any MF sensor.

The other probable big thing for the future is the high speed still/moving camera. The new Casio and the Red One (and Scarlet) hint at possible futures...
