A 50mm fish eye?

I've always struggled to see why talk of "their brand" introducing a medium format system gets certain users (thankfully, not so many on this particular forum) so excited...any MF system would be more or less completely incompatible with any manufacturer's current 35mm systems, so who cares about brand?
Yes. Often the excitement is accompanied by unrealistic expectations about pricing or features that would be offered by "their brand." There are those who believe that if "their brand" were to offer a medium format camera that the mere presence of such a camera would instantly revive a market that is dying. Some even imagine that "their brand" will be able to overcome the laws of physics by, for example, offering a larger format that would be magically compatible with existing lenses.
Interestingly, many of these same people seem to have a bit of a love-hate relationship with "their brand" always complaining that it is not living up to its potential and accusing the company of being too worried about making a profit (horrors!).
wow you are the background king! do you have a thread of ingenious backgrounds or a book or something?
