Fitting 1D4 sensor in a lower priced model and the retro look? Now that's truly nice of them.
One more camera with a better sensor than any Canon. This is becoming depressing.
What sounds interesting about this camera is the design, not the sensor (which will no doubt be excellent).
Canon sensors are the current whipping boy of online photo gear forums — repeatedly whipped in thread after thread. However, at a recent assignment, there were 2 photographers and 2 videographers all using Canon DSLRs — I'm guessing we had about a dozen Canon DSLRs in total (+ lots of Canon lenses and a Sigma or two). The sensors performed and no one was depressed about them. As Ming Thein wrote in his recent post on the Fuji X-E2, "Enough of specs: we’re all aware that cameras passed the point of sufficiency some time ago. Haptics and handling are far more important criteria determining whether a camera stays with you and becomes a partner or a hinderance."
