I believe that Hasselblad do not need to lower their standards, in the direction of a DSLR.

For Sony on the other hand, it could be a valuable partnership.

It would just be a next step. The Olympus OM-D has a Sony sensor - as do the new E-PL5 and E-PM2.

I'm hoping years of paranoid inferiority complex are now starting to pay off, us Sony Minolta types could start quoting zeiss, Olympus and hasselblad in conversation. Or we could just continue saying, "surely it's all about the final image"....exciting monopolising times.

From an endoscope ? Smile

"Olympus and Sony will set up a joint-venture to develop medical devices of the next generation, such as high definition endoscopes with video and 3D technology"

So let's take a Sony NEX-7 funk it up with a bit of retro, chunky dials and bolt on hand grip and voila - the ugliest Compact camera ever.

Oh and the projected price of the Lunar is a mere 4000. Yummy! Lol! Wink

This reminds me of Vertu mobile phones.......... which are basically tarted up Nokias.
