Fuji-GFX / FF = 44 * 33 / (36 * 24) = 1.7
Hassy-V / FF = 56 * 56 / (36 * 24) = 3.6
Hassy / Fuji = 3.6 / 1.7 = 2.1
What we need to know about the Fuji GFX 50S sensor size?

Hassy, Fujy, Penty, Phasy, . . .:
How about a real 56x56-sensor 16mp MF, with 15+ stops DR, that can shoot 4K internal with direct read-out, for $10K? I will buy one in a NY-minute!
No FF-on-steroid or MF-on-diet, please.

Suave: I would assume that the primes will come in above XEEN, but below Canon. So, around $4000?

Most Zeiss CP.2 primes are around $4,000. I expect(?) these Sigma primes, many are 1-f-stop or 1/2-f-stop faster, should be around $3000.

Lan: I wonder how large the market actually is for these? I understand that the margins are probably a lot higher for this side of the business, so it's a good area to play in, but given the fact that many/most manufacturers already produce "cinema" lenses, I'd be curious to know how well they'll actually sell?

I presume the non-cine 18-35/1.8 EF, an APS-C lens, should be sufficient to cover the Super-35 image circle? I am 95% confidence it will, but need to check more to confirm. If this Cine lens costs over $1,500 (which I guess it will), I will go for a used non-cine version for EF . . ., which I already have an AF adapter. We call this the poor man's Sigma!

I want the 18-35/T2.2 to shoot Super-35 on my A7Rii.
Price? Price? Price?

PKDanny: What is T2.2 = f?.?

T2.2 = F2.0.
These lenses are very heavy. E.g. S35 18-35/T2.2 is 1505g (E-mount).

On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1196 comments in total)

Just watched the Hasselblad live presentation. This X1D is not for me. The sensor size is 1.68x FF 35mm. A Hassy V 6x6 film is 3.63x times FF 35mm film size. I want at least a 6x45 sensor size, 24mp is fine with me. The two XCD lenses are extremely slow, considering the much smaller image circle coverage. I want at least f/2.8 or faster. I am using three f/2.8 V lenses for my film Hassy V, covering a much larger image circle. Bokeh? What's Bokeh! Guess I need to wait longer for the next "whatever brand" . . .

Paul B Jones: At least they have profits to plunge.

Yep, at least nice to still have some space below to plunge. But hitting the rock bottom will be a final destiny.

In reply to:

Steven-T: The Copper 13 Slim looks nice. But 1.2Kg is just WAY too heavy for travel, particularly for high altitude extended hiking.

I use an old small shoulder Domke (replaced by F-5XB?), weighs less than 0.6Kg, carry a M9, A7Rii, four M-lenses (WATE, MATE, 35Lux, 90/2.5), adapter, cards, passport, etc. Every milligramme counts.

Plus GPS, solar power panel, 4-season tent, -20C sleeping bag, wet floor pad, trekking poles, . . . ?

A bit slow. If it were f/2.8-4.5, I would most probably buy one for my GH4 for social filming.

Mister Joseph: Nice, 200-500 5.6 for $1300. I guess I won't be hand-holding my shots with that 2.3Kg lens though.

200-500 f/5.6 VR for $1300! I will buy a couple to use as baseball bat, a few as boat anchors, some paper weights too, . . . What's the hack!

On article Metabones adds autofocus to Canon-NEX adapter (63 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sad Joe: Very clever - so others are making it easy to leave Canon and I though that Canon had that covered already since they seem bent on bringing out expensive and naff products... I'm a very unhappy Canon Fanboy...

Count me in. I haven't spent money on Canon gears for 3 years, and parring down my L collections.
Will get a EOS-NEX smart adapter soon. The Metabones also features an Arca-Swiss quick release tripod mount. Nice.

APS-C sensor, with live view, built-in EVF, built-in flaSH, smaller "relatively" cheaper MX lenses, with M lens adapter, size as X1. This will compliment the M9 series greatly, particularly on macro and telephoto, for me.

-Steven.
