Maybe it will be a full frame mirrorless that has both full frame and APS-C mode so it could use almost any full frame or APS-C lens using low cost adapters like the Sony NEX-VG900.
It looks like the same people that designed the new nascar.com did the new flickr.
steve ohlhaber: Why cant canon include options like this from the start??? They have to know it will draw even more interest. I already have my S95 hacked with chdk, why not hack the 5d now.
Canon has nothing to do with this hack.
I could see people renting this with the Metabones speed booster to use on E mount video cameras like the 4K Sony NEX-FS700 as a fast F2.8 zoom lens.
Cameron R Hood: I'm holding out for the f2.8 'Pro' version....
Since it has a large image circle for a 6x6 MF camera a focal reducer should give you 1224mm @ F2.8 on a full frame sensor.
It's much larger than the RX100 and with a much smaller sensor but the saving grace is a much smaller price.
Snapzoom= FAIL Anyone with binoculars, spotting scopes or telescopes is also going to have a real camera to use with them already . I have the Verizon HTC Droid DNA with 1080p 5" display and 1080p front and back cameras but if I want to use a pocket size zoom I use my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 superzoom with 24-480mm eqiv zoom and 1080p60 that is not available on any smartphone.
If you want to come out with something useful come out with shoes without laces , It's now 2013 and using string to keep your shoes on your feet is stupid.
mpgxsvcd: I am waiting for a company to just say the heck with it and come out with a camera with a 1/3" sensor and a 20-1000mm F8.0 lens. They know that the average consumers have no idea what the lens specs mean.
The only thing the average consumer knows are megapixels and 50x zoom and that is what Sony, Canon, and Nikon are giving them.
However, Panasonic and Olympus know that eventually people will realize that the most important thing in a small sensor camera is the lens because that can make up for the fact that the sensor is so much smaller and still has way too many megapixels.
This Sony DSC-HX50V has one of the slowest lenses I have ever seen on a really small sensor. Why in the world do people think that they need telescope focal lengths in a pocket camera?
Get the RX100 if you want a faster zoom and larger sensor and quit cherry picking cameras that you don't like.
Pixel Judge: Would like to see the comparison test on the just launched zoom compacts:Pany LF1: 12mp on 1/1.7" sensor, 28-200mm f2.0-5.9.Sony HX50: 20.4mp on 1/2.3" sensor, 24-720mm f3.5-6.3.
They seem to target the same buyers...need longer zoom or more pixel...or better IQ?
Do you always compare cameras that are not in the same class? Compare it to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 compact superzoom .
io_bg: Good luck shooting in low light with this...
That is like a guy in a Mack truck telling someone in a Honda good luck carrying 20 tons of dirt. Do people get their cookies dissing cameras that are the best in their class but don't have a full frame sensor ?
Kodachrome200: i just think this thing looks great. sony claimed the rx100 was the greatest pocket camera of all time. maybe it was. but now to me this is. well well done
The New Your Times said that , not Sony.
Show me a link to were Sony claimed the RX100 was the greatest pocket camera of all time.
photog4u: What a boat anchor! I would no sooner lug that mess around as I would an anvil.
Gorgeous models though...
Stick with a lightweight 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens if that is what you like.
vastoulis: In the old,pre-digital days,the following joke was common:In a photojournalism class the lecturer says, You are on the seaside and there is a man drowning in front of you.You can either jump in the water and try to save him or take an impressive picture of him drowning.The question for the class is,"What ISO film would you use?"
Before 1982 it would have been" What ASA film would you use ?".
Vitruvius: This is a real disapointment for M43 users. Why not design the adapter to fit Canon EF-S and other APS-C lenses onto M43 camera the same way it is designed to fit full frame lenses onto APS-C? This is dumb to have a full frame lens attached to a M43 camera with a APS-C size image circle half wasted for $600.

I will wait for the Note 4 with 2560x1600 6.3" display when my Verizon HTC Droid DNA with 1080p 1920x1080 5" display 2 year contract expires in September 2014.
I will wait for the 4K version :)
Nikonworks: A gross defamation of a lovely women.
The pic caught my eye, but on closer view the diamonds on the lipsare a gross commercialization of the Human Form.

That video is not from the compact Blackmagic Pocket Camera.http://www.bmcuser.com/showthread.php?3477-Can-anyone-confirm-if-this-is-a-footage-from-BM-Pocket-camera
I pre-ordered it from B&H to use with my MFT , APS-C and full frame lenses . I have the Sony NEX-VG900 that works great with my APS-C and full frame lenses so this should work great with my MFT lenses like the 25mm F0.95 Nokton.
