We haven't seen any good Z lenses from third party makers yet. Anyone knows why?

Olympus tried to make 4/3 processors with over 20Mpixels for more time than their economics allowed them to. They believed that they would break the barrier of 20MP sooner, but they lost that bet and they were forced to sell their business.
The problem is that -as they say- they will keep aiming for the high-end market with 20MP for the next years.

You may have similar results with their iPhone app RNI Aero for $20 (or $10/year).

In 5 years we will have full frame sensors inside bodies smaller than current M43.
The game was lost for Olympus and they should adapt and follow Panasonic with full frame.

jaaboucher: The modules for it are about $80, but I can't tell what the connectors are at the back. Can you just plug them in without the dock?

Yeap, Thunderbolt 3 USB-C Connection on the back of each module.

We should decide if we want faster cameras or bigger sensors, because we can't have both. At least for the next 5-10 years.

Excellent article that you rarely find on internet these days!

I wish X-t40 have IBIS too.

While it has an old sensor, it has a new processor (the TruePic IX) and it is equaly important for image quality, because AF and color science happens in the processor.

Since this is a street photography camera and x-pro3 screen is made for street shooting, why didn't they put the same hidden screen in this model too?

Christos Cloud: We need a legislation that forces companies to use the same mount type, like they are using common usb charges etc.
Then we will see a drop in price, because companies will stop spending money inventing the wheel (that is the mount type) and start RND for better glass/motor quality and cutting cost via economy of scales.

@photomxp0 In Europe and maybe elsewhere, companies are forsed by law to use common USB chargers for charging. I propose the same for lense mounts, in order to protect the customers from being "locked" with a certain company and for reducing the cost.

@Tord S Eriksson 3 companies decided to use the same L mount. Why can't all of them decide to use one?

@photomxp0 There many areas to innovate in camera gear. Lense mount only traps customers to the company's ecosystem by increasing the switching cost and is a barrier to economy of scales because each company builds a different mount.

It is interesting that the pop camera is housed in the same place as the rear cameras. Some kind of synergy must be there.

KodaChrome25: Amazing. Marketing photos show no wires. Anywhere.

Maybe they can be placed inside the monitor's stand.

It is more secure than moving the photos around through other platforms, like whatsapp or viber.

Camera bodies should be cheaper in order to attract more customers into the ecosystem and allow them to buy a newer model sooner. But companies like Olympus, choose the opposite way.

Z mount isn't huge for an APSC sensor? Does the camera benefit from it?

A Fujifilm X-Pro3 Monochrom would be interesting :)
