I assume this is a kind of puffball? If so, one of my favorite - and best tasting mushrooms around!

biggles266: So many people on here arguing about the downside of huge prices for telephoto for FF, and saying that that boosts the market for crop and for m43 because they offer still decent quality but with more flexibility. Here's my vision of the future which makes all that argument silly, or am I missing something?

To me, the future is FF cameras, with IBIS, available below $2000 (preferably down to $1300-$1500 as hardware costs inevitably reduce like they always do), with the feature of letting the photographer switch it to crop/Dx mode or to m43 mode, or even lower. You get top FF quality for most photos, and simply reduce that quality as much as you want to when you want more telephoto or do macro. No need for huge expensive telephoto lenses for FF, just buy a very long lens designed for say crop/m43 etc instead. So in that sense, there is no market for just 'crop' cameras, since the future camera should be both FF and crop and more.

I would love to see a Canon 3D model like this.

The FF's would need to have very high MP sensors in order to give a sufficient pixel pitch in crop modes. That's not the direction we see with the new FF's, though, as the MP race has settled for the foreseeable future.
