The built in extender is good idea.
I would like to see it applied to top quality non-zoom primes, like for example a 100mm X2, a 200mm X2 and a 300mm X2. The optical priority should of course be on the prime with the extender producing better results than a 2X crop.

Canon came late to the game, and they should have gone with a full frame sensor. A FF mirrorless from Canon could have shaken things up.
Agreed !!

That's no good.
I agree with you. I am making a case for mirrorless because of its many other advantages. But you are right; the time to focus and some buyers fear of EVF is still a hold back. However, both of these are in the path of better chip technology which the semiconductor industry is very good at. I believe that in a couple of years it will be a mostly mirrorless market with a few DSLR holdovers.
I am prepared to buy a Sony RX1 right now. If there was an RX2 with interchangeable lenses or even with a hard mounted Zeiss 50-200 zoom I would buy that too.

150 msec????? This is sooo s---l---o---w. I guess that camera is not for me after all.
It's in the order of a young mans reaction time. Therefore a young man with a Sony RX1 would keep up with an old man with a DSLR.

Just curious why Nikon can do it but Canon can't.
Hi bdunbar 79
Why do you say that Canon can't ? Maybe I didn't understand your question.

Speaking of the D800, is it true in Nikon cameras, when you are in auto ISO, you can still do EC?
You can do EC (Exposure Compensation) in both manual ISO and auto ISO. Auto ISO does not alter your exposure (ISO+aperture setting+exposure time) it only tries to optimize ISO for the exposure that you or the camera have selected, be it a compensated exposure or not.
You would normally not select auto ISO (or EC) in full manual mode since it would rob you of full control.

The FF sensor in a body like the Fujifilm XPro-1 would be very desirable
Look at the new Sony RX1.

The only issue is that I have no idea just how responsive the (Sony RX1) camera is.
Focus acquisition time is reported to be 150 msec. (0.15 sec).

I was hoping that Hasselblad would introduce something new 2012, like they have been boosting about. Though the H5D is new to Hasselblad, the technology and capability only represents a new model year. A $ 6,000 body price would get my attention but my dealer reports $ 10,000.
The only affordable megapixel is still the Nikon D800, severely tarnished by it's focusing problems and Nikon's failure to admit and inform.
However, I welcome the Sony RX1: Though only 24 MP, this mirrorless FF with a fixed MF-AF Zeiss 35 and optional EVF-OVF could be the trick on the street.

For street photography .. a small stealthy .. excellent image quality
I'm considering the Sony RX1: FF mirrorless with fixed 35 Zeiss MF-AF lens and optional OVF-EVF.

Sony announces new mirrorless image sensor technology with PD autofocus pixels on the image sensor. Possibly part of a two step process with fast PD autofocus before final accurate CD microfocus, both on the image sensor. 2012 is going to be a banner year for mirrorless photography innovation at the top.

when im on film shoots, the DPs seem to always complain about lag/latency problems, and missing the real view they had with optical finders. paul
Hi Paul,
Good info. How much of a time lag are we talking about ?
Enough to upset a portrait, dull a circus act, or miss a passing race car ?

EVF still has a ways to go. I also agree that shooting in live view is a distant and somewhat shaky experience.
I would like to see an optically magnified live view with a slightly protruding eyepiece alá Pro-Video, for solid viewing and camera control. Include exposure preview, composite dynamic range preview and focus highlight.
By the way, just out about Sony:
First new Sony mirrorless FF cameras for 2012 are high end camcorders. NEX-7 alike mirrorless FF cameras in 2013.
Also: Sony announces mirrorless FF image sensor technology with PDAF pixels on the image sensor. Possibly part of a two step process with fast PDAF before final CD microfocus, both on the image sensor.
