    D700 - a toy. I'm buying a real camera!

    I wish.



    Leica has today unveiled a brand new autofocus DSLR system designed for professional users, which is configured around a 30x45mm sensor (i.e. 56% larger than 35mm full-frame). The S-system will utilize an advanced new dual shutter, with both an in-body focal plane shutter for fast lenses, and in-lens leaf shutters for high flash sync speeds. The first camera, the S-2, will feature a 37.5 megapixel CCD sensor in a weatherproof body which is similar in size and handling to conventional 35mm-type DSLRs. The new ‘Maestro’ image processing system provides twice the operating speed of current medium-format backs, significantly reduced power consumption, and allows production of in-camera JPEGs. The company has also developed a range of nine new lenses, including macro, ultra-wideangle, and tilt-and-shift designs.
    The lenses will include 24mm ultrawide, 35mm wide, 70mm standard, 100mm short tele, 120mm macro, 180mm telephoto, and 30mm tilt-and-shift optics – more details to be added as we get them.

    Details on DPReview here.

    My mates got a film Lieca. He paid $2,000 for his 35mm prime. I think I'll pass on that beauty you posted K1W1.

    Oh and if you had a better camera you'd have less excuses for poor shots. I've still got the list you made up for me to explain poor shots, would you like a copy back

    37.5 megapixels... what do we do with those prints?

    Make billboards? Or we can now shoot anything using wide lens and just crop to get close-up shots! :P

    You just never know when you are going to have to count the skin pores on your model's face or flakes of eye-makeup on her lashes. I want to see that stuff ... don't you?


    I also need an excuse to buy a two-TB drive for my computer and laptop.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Yea, I do wonder what the JPEG size would be for 37mpx...

    That would be around... 8100x4500 pixels, no compression, JPEG. Should be around 12-15MB per image... You can only keep 300 images in a 4GB memory card. That's if you don't use RAW :P.
