Default 150mp for medium format. FF now lags seriously behind

Yes, the Phase One camera costs a mint, $50,000. But it's pretty likely 100mp
sensors will migrate-down in short order to Hasselblad, Fuji and maybe
Pentax. m4/3rds is at 20mp which is the same density as 80mp FF but APS and
FF continue to lag behind by a bit.


Fujifilm is already there for 100MP. The GFX-100S is scheduled for 2019
delivery at about $9,000.

....and for affordable MF the GFX-50R (an X-Pro on steroid) around $3,500 to
be announced at Photokina. Speculation has that price possibly moving to
$2,500.

Mind-bending if true. I never saw that kind of price coming.

Really? It's just a variant of Moore's law.

In about 1965 I paid £2 for four low-noise transistors for a gramaphone
preamp that I was building. That was the pay for a full day pumping gas,
as a schoolboy.

Now then, now then, is that what jimmy called it back then ?

Selling petrol. I just translated it into American for the convenience
of most of the posters!
