Just because people use electronic post processing rather than mechanical post processing really makes no difference to me.
Film images were doctored just as electronic images are, objects and people were inserted or removed from images, areas of the image lightened or darkened, exposures changed, colors changed, contrast changed, its just that some people do not know how it used to be done and think that post processing is something new.
Keep the nifty-fifty alive. However, if they update this to 50mm F1.8 IS, I'll be thoroughly thrilled. We need IS!!! Sometimes it's the difference between getting ambient lights without getting your picture too noisy and not.
There are a number of patents from many camera companies for interchangeable sensors, but so far, the idea has been impractical simply because new technology requires additional connections and electronic speeds that were not foreseen two or three years earlier, and getting tied to out of date technology isn't something engineers want to do.
Right now, many sensors are switching to 8 channel readouts, what will be have in 3 years? 12, 14, or 16 channel, and what speeds? The motherboard and processor tie you down to todays technology pretty well. It also ties down any improvements in autofocus, video, or nr among other things.
Its not really such a good idea when you think about how much it shackles you to obsolete technology..
Its hard to believe that we will see practical interchangeable sensors unless its just for easy replacement of a damaged part.
ok now im really confused!
