For me, it all started with a Spotmatic F.
I think the "M" series also deserves mention due to the significant size reduction in both body and lenses.

On article What the Z50 tells us about Nikon's APS-C strategy (677 comments in total)

That mount on the Z50 really does look out of place.
Either the sensor is too small or the mount is too big, or both.

Given the shallow flange-back, couldn't they have used a smaller diameter mount with some sort of simple Z (and/or FX) adapter ?
Yeah, yeah I know everyone hates adapters ...

mpb002: Didn’t Nikon say not that long ago that they were going to focus on the higher end camera market only? I guess they changed their mind?...

Nikon lacked an APS-C mirrorless line, and now they have it.
I don't think it's any more complicated than that, don't overthink it.

Lester Paul: It shows how some large sensor development has hit a wall.
The most advanced M43 or APSC sensors today are the Samsung BSI 28MP sensor, the EM1 mark ii sensor with its super fast readout spread and near APSC specs (especially for SNR18), and then the Fujifilm 26MP sensor. I dont know if the GH5s sensor is that good because it is only 10MP, but it is more advanced than other sensors.

What I don't get is Sony who makes all the current best sensors (Samsung doesn't make the 28MP sensor anymore). In their best APSC camera, they use a sensor from 2014 that isn't stacked, doesn't have BSI, and has very slow sensor readout. If only they used a sensor as advanced as the "old" one found in the EM1 mark ii.

Is it possible that the reason Sony sold off their stake in Olympus is so they wouldn't be compelled to develop a new(er) (BSI,etc) sensor for u4/3 ?

Great shot. Nicely decorated version of the Northrop Freedom Fighter F-5A.

@gannon
The article and Fuji's release mention "optical" image stabilization, but the spec sheet lists "sensor-shift".
Is this dual IS ?

Thanks for the report.

Based on this, I am looking at one of the similarly sized (F5 ?) models that incorporate a belt slot.

If one is considering auto exposure I recommend that a body capable of aperture priority (electronic shutter) would be more desirable/flexible.

I 'get' that the bleeding edge tech must go into the devices most likely to return the investment.
But isn't it about time at least some of the sensor advances are trickled down to µ4/3 ?
Sony ... ?

The slo-mo segments seemed to be limited to a short length of time in playback.
