Cameracist: Please, what is a m4/3 equivalent of those lenses? Thank you.

I suspect it is not that easy.

The image ratio is the same whitch makes it easy:

Diagonal of the P1 100MP-senor is 67.20 mm and the diagonal of an 4:3-sensor is 21.64 mm.
21.64/67.20≈0.322
=> XF 100MP x 0.322 => 4:3
One 13-26mm f/1.3-1.8 and one 24-48mm f/1.3-1.8 would be needed for equivalent angle of view and depth of field.

LWW: Going medium format in 1990 was the worst thing I did for my photography. To heavy, to tired or lazy. Mamiya 645 kit. M43 is the best thing for my photography, light and convenient. No-one questions IQ over image impact for sales.

Edit: sorry, wrong comment.

ShootFilmNotMegaPixels: Does Phase One have film backs or can you mount of a film back with an adapter?

As far as I know no. The last camera with support for film back was Mamyia 645 AFD III.

Marty4650: I need to find an adapter... so I can use these lenses on my Panasonic GM1.....

Is there a smart Phase1-PentaxQ adapter?

AshMills: Equivalence police- that's 16-32mm f1.6-2.4 and 30-60mm 1.6-2.4 to you.

I would like to have a 48m-96mm f2.6-3.6 for my 24x36 mm² camera. I think that is a handy range.

The Name is Bond: The X-rite is a usability nightmare. Such clunky software.

Argyllcms is also available for mac. Buy a cheap Spyder4 and use it with argyllcms! Or just leave it the way it is!

Truebar: If you want to satisfy everybody, then please put image stabilisation into the camera body. Thanks in advance.

Ok, IBIS would not work with the XF-mount or would compromise the IQ too much. I get that. But sating that IBIS would be a b*s* feature is ... well, b*s*.
And a touchscreen can be convenient at low camera angles. The screen has to be tiltable though.

So is the Spyder software. I purchased a Spyder4 lite for my Eizo ColorEdge because the only diffenrence in the to the more expensive ones is the software and I don't use the software at all. I use the Eizo software of course. Before I had a ColorEdge I used Argyllcms. That software seem to be quite capable and is easy to use (for a command line software).

sneakyracer: I am really impressed by the 90mm lens used in these shots. Bokeh looks very very nice and the images are tack sharp at the point of focus. The Color looks ok but its a matter of processing taste. A bit disappointed with the iso 1600 shots. Noisy and soft. Again, might be an issue easily resolved with better post-processing.

But this is an intrinsic advantage.

FM2/T. Or One of these rediculous gold collectors editions.

PhotoKhan: In my calibrated monitor there seems to be a yellow/greenish veil cast in all the samples.

Definition is, indeed, very good but nothing to write home about for a MF sensor.

I was hopping to be more impressed. Maybe with the next batch of samples?

I took a closer look at the Pictures. I revise my statement. They are all well balanced and there is no color cast.

Eizo ColorEdge CG241W calibrated with Spyder4 shows no yellow/greenish veil cast on these pictures.

Edit: The window pictures have an bit greenish tint because there is much foliage outside. The pictures taken with flash look ok to me.

Marksphoto: I would add a fisheye lens if I was the white house photographer so that I can distort the heck out of Obama's face. 135 2.0 will take good photos of Donald Trump though when he takes the post and trumps Hillary.

With such a low resolution screen (920,000 dots), how would that be a smart phone like experience?

Eleson: Anyone else than me that is a bit surprised with the flange diameter?
(I hesitate to use the word disappointed as I'm not even close to being in the market for this one.)
But it seems to be designed around the sensor size, which leaves no or very little room for a camera with a larger sensor at a later stage.
To me, it seems a bit shortsighted from an MF manufacturer.

Sure. But the camera would recognise the lenses and would switch to a crop mode. And the bigger lenses will do fine on the smaller sensor. The flange distance would have to be a bit longer, so that an addapter would fit. It would have been much better if they if they would have made the mount bigger in the first place.

Kamox: Am I the only one who reads the cautious considerations of the manager as to avoid "sales cannibalization" of the much more expensive Hasselblad reflex models?

It is exactly what I think.

They also say "...designing a mirrorless system is relatively easy compared to our usual H cameras". If it is so easy they can bring a model designed around the bigger 100MP-sensor or a later sensor from the H-series with bigger mount. Adapters would be easy to make.

Fotogeneticist: We need to stop using the term "mirrorless" to name these latest cameras. Imagine if we called cars "horseless carriages". The image follows a different path from the scene to the sensor to the finder. We used to call cameras with two lenses Twin Lens Reflex. Then Hasselblad ushered in the Single Lens Reflex. I propose Digital Sensor Reflex (DSR). The image goes directly to the sensor through the lens and the sensor "reflexes" the image to the finder. TLR --> SLR --> DSLR --> DSR.

Single lense live view camera: SLLV. Or just live view camera. Because live vew is the only way to see a preview of the picture. In contrast to viewfider cameras or other thru the lens systems like SLRs.m Or just compacts. Normal compacts and interchangeable lens compacts. I think I like interchangeable lens compacts best.

2JoeA7R2: Back to the future: My 4x5 Linhof has been mirrorless since I bought it in 1972.

Graflex Speed Graphic is mirrorless since 1912 (2¼ x 3¼ inch to 5 x 7 inch) for example.
