I think it's only a matter of time before Canon & Nikon start to produce these sort of cameras. They are selling really well worldwide; I'm sure they will not want to be left behind. It is rumoured that Nikon are already planning one for release early next year.
It would appear that Fuji are going to do one.
ps, just found this re Canon.
Interesting articles Ken, its a maybe from Canon then.....
There`s also this Nikon rumour, if true it will be very similar to the new Pentax system and using a small digicam. sensor.
A lot of interesting comments on dof with regard to size of sensor in that article Paul.
Although its claimed a tiny digicam sensor will be used there saying it will have a crop factor of about 2.6.
But of course there will be no crop factor at all, the lenses will be designed for this camera and sensor, a little like 4/3 or M4/3, a crop factor only really comes into play if using a lens designed for 35mm.
An interesting article ( have you got a Lite boy ) and in the third paragraph commenting on the Olympus PEN Lite E-PL3 with regard to quote' pleasing blurry backgrounds'
Quote: a little like 4/3 or M4/3, a crop factor only really comes into play if using a lens designed for 35mm.
So, when using the kit lens on PEN, there is no crop factor of 2x?
'Crop factor' has become a multi-purpose term. Strictly it is appropriate when using lenses with a larger image circle than necessary for the size of the sensor.
But more loosely, it has become a way to compare with so-called full-frame cameras, i.e. with 36mm x 24mm sensors.
Not really no, these lenses are designed from the ground up, there only comparing these lenses to 35mm.
I am confused.
So, when using 14-42 on pen, you get wider angle compared to when using 17-40 on 5d2?
No, because its not really a 14-42.
In that case, what is it then?
Its a 28-84.
