Well, just finished reading the new update at DCwatch on the x10 announcement in Japan
It seems like Fujifilm is determined to test out the possibility of having a interchangeable lens, mirror-less
FF camera. That's quite an ambition there, I must say.
Coming to think of it, Fuji and Canon might be actually thinking along the same line - going FF.
So, putting some of the related rumors in place:
- a low-cost FF on Canon's chart
- Fuji possibly making Fujinon lens for Canon bodies
- Fuji going 35mm fullsize, low-noise sensor (albeit aiming for the mirror-less market)
Coincidence? Looks like things are getting quite interesting for the 2012 CES, especially for the two companies who haven't shown any response for the EVIL market...
It seems unlikely to me but might some kind of m43 like allianece take place?
I actually think that FF mirrorless might turn out to be a bigger market that crop. With the latter your IMHO always going to have more of the userbase wanting zooms that unbalance a system where as the former are more likely to accept compact primes that make the most if size./weight savings.
