Sixpm: If only Fuji willing to retro fit their Instax film to work with Polaroid SX70/600 cameras, they can instantly doubling their Instax film sales.

That's where copyright and the monetary system sucks, instead of allowing freedom and innovation, capitalism only cares about profits and winners takes all.

Sixpm: For flat field macro work I would recommend MFT because of the greater depth of field. I was asked to photograph a salted dry fish which is about 1 inch in length, without any thought I used the Sony A7R2 with the 90m G-master, thinking the sharpness would be fine but I didn't expect depth of field issues, even stopping down to f16, the only way to get the whole thing sharp is to stack it with multiple shot. That when I thought to give the MFT a shot, I had the Pan F with Olympus 60mm and I shot it with 80mp stitch mode at f11, the entire fish was in focus because the circle of confusion is so much smaller thus providing greater depth of field. The final work was printed out to 6ft wide and the detail was amazing. That's when I learned each sensor size has its own advantages.

That's why one should embrace each format for their given advantages, many people simply don't want to carry extra weight for the size of image or prints needed. Those who need to have huge sharp landscapes wouldn't have mind to carry heavier large format gear to satisfy their needs and passion.

MFT is also best for super long telephoto photos because it's easier to design and manufacture a sharper long telephoto for MFT than for the FF because of more glass and aberrations to cover a larger image circle.

Sixpm: If it wasn't for the announcement of the Fujifilm GFX 100 I would have seriously about purchasing the S1R it as I was looking for something to replace my Sony A7R2 which have served me well over the last few years. I must say it was unfortunately a bad timing for Panasonic coming into the full frame arena now as they could have done quite well but Fujifilm took the limelight and sales from them. For me, I have made an absolute perfect decision with the GFX 100 and this camera will now serve me for many years to come.

As it happens, my 32gb i7 Hackintosh with super fast solid state memory is fast enough for the GFX100 files and therefore no need to upgrade the computer.

It's nice to see so many awake and aware people here all commenting with the understanding that the blame culture is no longer working as an excuse to cover up their failure.

61mp is only 11mp more than Canon's 50mp, the 15 stop dynamic range is obviously better, but I'm still really happy with my A7R2, what make it interesting is what Sigma will bring out later or early next year with their full frame high res Foveon sensor since speed or high ISO is not something I need.

Humanity have been well indoctrinated/brainwashed with our present slavery system, we have been carefully controlled in all walks of our lives and few are aware of it. The patent system and copyright law only works because of this slavery system where divide and conquer is simple self perpetuate mechanism to control the unconscious messes. Many of the free energy inventions is quickly swept under the radar in order to support our insane fossil fuel economy by coerce the inventor or simply murder them if they don't yield. While most humanity will argue between nation and will obey to kill with their power of persuasion. Earth is our only home and everyone is behaving as we can continue our way forever, this present economic system is unsustainable as well as depleting natural resources and polluting our only home.

I know this is a photo forum but it's time to do more research and wake up, the film Matrix is not that far from the truth of the lies we're living under.

Check out this video with Lomo's Digitaliza (come in 35 and 120) at fraction of the cost.

One more thing to add, rumour is flying around that Fujifilm is working to implement pixel shift for the GFX 100, this meant it will probably end up with 400MP image....something to think about.

Consider the Panasonic or S mount lenses aren't that cheap, in fact I believe they cost as much as the native GF lenses. It's pure physics on image quality, the larger the sensor the more dynamic range, specially the GFX 100 now have BSI and true 16bit. Fujifilm have priced these MF camera similar to top line from Nikon or Canon is charging, it's a no brainer to me.

I've learned over 70% of MF users is moving from FF sector and I guess there must be some truth in this.

Sixpm: The world is heading towards an economic meltdown, this is simply to proof our present economic system not only failed miserably, but it also highlighted how unconscious humanity as a whole disregard how advance our technology is. It is totally unsustainable to continue our profit centric economy where we must consume to prop up this insane suicidal economic system. We are both depleting the natural resources, polluting the only home we got and literally killing ourselves slowly but surely.

We do have the knowledge and technology to make things to last for years, we can do away with money and no need to upgrade or to introduce machines or new models of everything we use and free humanity from money slavery. No one will need to sleep in the streets while empty houses are boarded up and to be left to rot.

We are all guilty of our lacking in consciousness and no amount of education can get us out of our own unconscious predicaments.

There won't be a civilisation if we still continue our ways at this rate and so there is no worry about advancement. The world's resources belongs to everyone of it's inhabitants and yet we all having to PAY at birth till we are die, what kind of unconsciousness is that? We have enough technology to house and feed everyone but lacking in consciousness and will to implemented. All because we all have been fed with indoctrination that we must have an incentive to promote work. There was never any intention to raise the overall consciousness in the first place because dump people are easier to control and handled by those few at the helm.

I'm much more interested in the Sigma SA mount for the Sigma full frame (hopefully early next year) as both the Panasonic and the Leica are over priced IMHO.
