solarsky: The Nokia 808 PureView with its 41.48 MP sensor already captured full 8K stills in 16:9, and that was using components developed between 2008 and 2011... These companies have a LOT to catch up on...

I used to own a 808, too, but some rotten thieves stole it from me, in Bali of all tourism gulags...

Howard: I think this is a good refresh of the xxD line. With the bumped-up resolution and better AF, it should pair really well with lenses like the 100-400 II to offer a capable wildlife/action kit. I personally don't care much for 4K video, but it is a little that it does not offer it in this day and age.

Now the $1199 question is: will the DR hold up to the competition? ;-)

Yes :-) With an adapter.

Will this lens+adapter-combo work on a Varicam LT, which can supply lens power for the OIS and actively set the iris aperture via the Varicam's active EF-mount? It'd be a great way of saving... $35K+ for Fuji Cabrio lenses...

The new 36MP full frame Pentax K-1 is only $1800. Cool, ey?

Multi-shot Pixel Shift Resolution mode is the outstanding feature here, imho. It gives me the image quality of a 4x over-sampled image at nominal resolution. What would I otherwise pay for the resolving power of a 144.8 MP camera? $1800 or rather $180000?

@Catalin Stavaru You're not addressing DNG-RAW-output. This is a website for photographers.

@Catalin Stavaru Bashing, no arguments = propaganda.

@Dr_Jon Perhaps you should take a look at advancements in the area of camera-side processing-technology...

@Dr_Jon I'm hoping that'll be more clear once the GH5 is announced.
