Just Monday morning ramblings while I wake up. Still drinking my first cup of tea If Nikon released a larger-sensor mirrorless system, would you be interested? (by "larger sensor" here, I mean with nothing smaller than an APS-C sensor, and preferable full frame or both options). I know Nikon has been hurting, but I was wondering what my gripes are with Sony, and the answer is -- I never trust their dedication to the craft. I think it's always bottom line first. So, I thought who could do this? m43 -- wonderful system, but sometimes you just need a bit more than the sensor delivers (I don't see Oly going outside of m43. Unsure about Panasonic) Sony -- great backs, but limited commitment to the needed lenses. Main interest seems to be in churning new bodies. Also, I really do believe the super-short flange-back distance is hampering their lens development. The best lens experience on Sony is the one where the lens is fairly sizable or it's an adapted lens. Fuji -- great cameras and lenses, but not everyone's cup of tea, and some x-trans debate (and old sensor tech). AF always seems a step behind. But they do seem dedicated! Canon -- always, always, always leads from the rear. If you don't mind getting things a few years later than everyone else, then Canon is for you! (note -- I'm a former frustrated Canon user) So, I picked Nikon because they -- seem free to use the best sensors (as opposed to Canon), have an extensive lens catalog and 3rd party support, seem to have nailed mirrorless AF with the 1 system, appear quite dedicated to the space, and what photographers want, because they could launch a NEW system, they could learn from the mistakes of the others (e.g. not such a short flange distance) They would need to, however, offer the same excellent manual lens focusing aids that Sony provides. Maybe they don't have the funds to launch such a bid or maybe the are too afraid of killing their DSLRs, or what have you, but speculatively, would you be interested? I would!
