Daspletosaurus: Somebody at Fuji product planning has really done their job. Really smart move. The APS-C and 35mm FF markets are saturated, whereas the low-end MF is fairly untapped, and I bet you the margins are going to be higher. The Pentax 645 is pretty much the only incumbent. Hasselblad had the same idea, but I actually think Fuji will have the initial advantage due to better lens selection at launch. Plus, unlike Hasselblad, Fuji doesn't have a higher-end product line to protect so they can go all out with later models.

Yes, only the 10K price tag is killing my enthusiasm.

Oly needs to rethink their naming strategy.
It used to be OM-1, 2 etc.
Now its a weird bunch of letters and odd numbers.

rsf3127: No post asking for a pancake 0.95f prime lens or a 10-300mm 1.8f zoom so far. Weird...

Give the folks 1-2 weeks and it will start...

magneto shot: rightname would be "C-medium format" or cropped medium format since that is what it is. its nowhere near the size of medium formats as reference in film days.

Its a cropped MF, the name is not there yet.
Anything bigger than 35 is MF? how about a 38x26, is that MF too?
MF starts at 6x4.5.

itaibachar: Looks like a big Instagram toy... and since when is 44x33mm medium format?
It's an "APS-C" MF, with "aps-c MF" lenses...

Anything below 6x4.5 is croped MF, and at 44x33 its far from it. It's just the words describing the thing, Im sure its a great sensor, But out of respect to the format, theses cropped sensors don't get to be called "Full Frame" MF, just cropped MF.

Are they on the rise?

If I could mount my Canon lenses on this thing, I'd buy it.

SeeRoy: Of course DSLRs focus better and are therefore better for wildlife photography...
Unfortunately only for those wildlife photographers who don't walk far from the car.
For those of us for whom all kinds of photography involve walking long distances in the countryside, lugging along a backpack plus extra clothing, plus food, plus drink, adding 20 lb+ of DSLR and lenses (600 F4 anybody?) is a PIA.
Trading the DSLR benefits for increased range and mobility will often produce better photographic opportunities.
But of course by now the pix are usually secondary to the gear and notional "IQ" - in most senses of the acronym.

a 600 f4 weighs the same on a mirroless body.
a 650-700 grams A7 with extra batteries weighs 300 g less than a D810/5Ds/r.

Jetfly: I'm still waiting for a Zeiss lens which offers autofocus capabilities for Nikon mount. Just like Batis for Sony FE.

Sony probably have a deal with Zeiss, not to offer AF to canon/nikon.

The marketing dep at Zeiss are under new management...
recycling their zf glass all over with creative new product design
and 'improved' prices.

MP Burke: I haven't been able to find out how much this camera weighs. Will it set a new record for a 35mm dslr? Now, how about trying to make a digital slr (for those who want a 35mm sensor but don't want high speed motor drives) that is no bigger and heavier than the film slrs of the 1970's or 1980's?

And the bank...

itaibachar: Good for Canon!
But I'm a bit worried/disappointed about the small area the focus points cover. They're cramped into the center of the frame, very limiting our composition options to a centralized subject.
Me not like...:-(

If your subject is the torso yes, but I like to focus on people's heads, and they are not located at the center of a typical frame. I really dont understand this design feature. It is handicapping an otherwise great tool.
