FYI ~ well, well, well ... how do you do

Hey, it's not exactly what I had in mind in a 2-month-old entry regarding my desire for a camera with interchangeable sensors, but nevertheless, the floodgates have been opened by Ricoh for a camera with interchangeable sensors - much like the floodgates for a small high quality camera/sensor were opened with the Olympus EP-1.

This could get quite interesting, And, if were a prediction-making man, I might be inclined to predict that, between the ongoing developments in the micro 4/3rds arena and now this Ricoh development, what we are witnessing is the end of the digital 35mm-bodied behemoth as the standard for high quality, serious-minded picturing making - excluding pros and the ever-"perfection-driven" gear heads, of course.

Saw this too and thought hmm, third party vendors making the bodies and lens vendors making the lens/sensor combinations.

Maybe they'll give us a square sensor instead of the rectangles which we are currently burdened with.

The next thing I thought about is there a advantage to sensor type to lens combination. CCD for long lens vs CMOs for wide angle ect.

Should be interesting to see how this all plays out.
