Well Sony made bigger sensors than Cannon (beyond full frame - i.e. Medium format)…

So now Canon leaked making an Even bigger sensor (Canon Medium format digital)..

BUT more important - they patented a Curved sensor so they can now get better sharpness, and reduce the number of elements in the lenses that are there because of the flat sensor.

COOL !! The curved sensor is a game changer.

I think I read your post to quickly. I thought you were touting a Sony upcoming MF Camera. Fuji has been at that game for a while now...I think they're on their third iteration with the GXF50 and GFX100. I've got a friend with a GFX and he says he had to upgrade to a new Computer with mega storage to edit the image. ...and with all that, the only benefit he's gaining is extra resolution for when he want to produce bigger than poster images (think Billboard).
He did a demo for me where he grabbed an image he shot at the beach. There was a airliner waaay in the background and he cropped in on the plane and showed me amazing resolution for a non-subject incidental capture. Of course he was shooting f16 or something waaay choked down.

I don't anticipate needing a MF camera in my wildest dreams in the next 5 years.

It may be Fuji that made the bigger format sensor…

Either way - it’s about time they did something to improve camera tech of larger format cameras - I think the phone cameras are about peaked out.

Shooting anything above 40 megs needs camera stabilization or things get tuff so these 250-800 meg sensors are going to be tough to get right….

The medium format cameras will cost well over 10k IMHO…

Actually it’s Sony coming out with it…

But it’s not April fools day.. Fuji made the first one, Sony is going after #1 and trying to beat Canon.

Let me make sure I understand…you’re shooting an older
Nikon and looking to jump to Canon because you’re not happy with your images… but now you’re considering jumping to MF because you read something about Sony chasing that market?

If you’re just spitballing (because it is after all the Campfire)…then carry on. …and sorry for inserting my reality view.
