Marksphoto: that's a thin body, I had to wonder... This isn't a true medium format camera, make no mistake, my 5dmk2 will make the same image quality and I don't know whose images will look better at a pixel peeping level...

True medium format is 60mm x 45mm, I think Hassy should be 60mm x 60mm so they keep true to their marketing values. So what do we have instead.... a 44x33mm sensor; how does that compare in size to 36x24mm that most of us already have?

So I made a sensor comparison chart here: https://photos.google.com/search/_tra_/photo/AF1QipNF1V4qJeB95tYIwYlkryp6nNMFXT2BU9isJgCq

Judging that this sensor is not that much bigger than the 35mm full frame sensor we could really get away with the same or better results by just adding any sigma art lens with a fast apperture of 1.4 and call it a day!

length x width= area

36 x 24 = 864

44 x 33 = 1,452

not much bigger?

impressive performance of the K1. the stationary objects and moving ones with motion correction on are just outstanding. Hopefully Adobe will get on board with keeping up with some support.
This camera is now on my wish list.

mikeSF: wow, impressive performance with the pixel shift. Admittedly, I have pixel shift on my K3II but have never used it. For still life/product work, it looks fantastic.

yeah, i really think it may be best for still life/product shooting.

mmarian: It appears to be a great lens based on the specs. But quite honestly I never fully understood the so called MF hype because tyey are not MF. The MF term comes from past times. The MF term described the size of image on 120mm size roll film. All cameras which were using that film were called MEDIUM FORMAT cameras. The size of the MF was either 6cmx4.5cm or precisely 56x42.5mm ( such as Mamyi 645) or 6cmx6cm (Hasselblad ) which was 56x56mm or 6cmx7cm which was 56x68mm (Mamyia 67). These days however for some obscure reason anything larger than 35mm FF sensor is called MF. Why, I do not understand. The only sensor I know which trully represents the smallest of what used to be a genuine MF is the PhaseOne 80MP back with sensor size only slightly smaler than 56x42.5mm. Everything else is just a bit of BS and marketing jargon and it has nothing to do with true MF as we knew it. Anyway, this new lens just prompted me to have a bit of a winge but that is not to take anything from the fact that this should be a great lens even for the times when we might actually see a true MF size sensors and cameras for afordable prices.

try not to let it bother you so much.

wow, an exciting new release. I love the A35/3.5 and will likely update for the 9 blades and modern coatings.

fisherman_lol: To DPR Moderators; This jpino79 guy is been flooding this forum all day with his inflammatory comments and you are not doing anything about it? I think if he was bashing CANIKON he would be banned for life. ;)

jpino, maybe you wouldn't feel the need to defend so much if you did offend so much.

Mssimo: Good to see real innovation, something we have not seen from Canon or Nikon in many years.

i'd much rather read a mature discussion without all the negativity and trolling.
