Is there time for an interchangeable sensor DSLR?

F6 + 35mm digital back

Anyone remember Leica DMR ?

I've just downloaded this morning a few raw files from this back, and oh boy... they're simply gorgeous!

At ISO 100, are among the best files I've ever seen, period, including the mighty cameras from 7 years later.

Anyway, back to the point.  The DMR was the closest thing to interchangeable 35mm sensors.

It's sad this concept died...

I'll throw some wood into the fire:  Imagine you could use amazing bodies such as Nikon F5 or F6, and swap sensor.

Ultra fast, low noise 18 mp sensor... high res 40mp when needed... dedicated BW... FF CCD sensor for those still in love with CCD... With / without AA filter, etc etc ...

Imagine the F6 with a FF 24mp Foveon sensor !

I know, I know, got live in the real world ...
