Too much MP for my taste.
Sounds just about right for landscapes. If only it has the DR...
Completely agree, totally.
This would be a Pro Body, main competitors being the Phase One IQ250, Pentax 645z & Haselblad H5D, basically anything with the Sony 50MP CMOS Sensor in it (and you can bet good money that Sony are about to drop that Sensor into their own body, sooner not later), is that worth competing with ?? I think so, I hope Canon does as well.
Price ??, about right, Competes well with the price of the 645z, certainly competes more than well with the Phase One & Haselblad (Sony will do it for 1/3 the price, but that have zero Lenses to match without Zeiss).
Will it happen, no idea, but I certainly hope so.
It would have to have a large sensor to really compete, though. Put a 50mp FF and 50mp 44x33mm MF head to head, and the MF is going to win. The Sony 50mp MF in the backs or MF cameras from any one of those companies would pulverize a Canon 50mp FF in any IQ comparisons. Again, that boils down to equivalence...more total light for a given subject framing, better IQ. Pixel counts really wouldn't matter.
I guess it depends on how you define "win." I won't argue with you that a medium format camera of the same resolution won't turn out better images than a 35mm full frame. But if the image quality was good enough, something better than what is out there in the rest of the 35mm world but not quite up to the level of modern medium format, some would consider that a win. You'd have a much more portable kit with many more lens options the you would have with medium format, especially if you were already invested in high end EF glass.
That being said, it's not something that will end up in my bag, unless it's ten years from now on eBay.
