Well, if you're a scientist or blowing up pictures the size of billboards it
may be worth it.
So far I'm happy with 6.1

36x48mm chip, roughly 4000 x 5333 pixels (1Ds2: 3300 x 4950) so 16x21 prints
will be as good as 13x19s from the 1Ds2. Note that this sleazy comparison is
for different aspect ratio prints<g>.

A 4GB card holds 100 RAW images. Ouch.

The widest lens is 35mm; 35/48 = x/36 => 26mm equiv.

That reviews their digital "back". There is also a full self contained
digital camera:

I don't think they've announced a price yet but I really doubt it's going to be
$10,000 in the USA. At Photokina someone "guessed" it would sell in Europe for
10,000 Euros (which is where the $10,000 apparently came from) but this would
be about $12,000 US and also Mamiya USA jacks up the prices tremendously since
they have a monopoly with no grey market imports allowed. Typically the high
end Mamiya lenses and bodies sell for 50-80% MORE in the US than they do in say
England at a place like Robert White (where I've bought a couple of Mamiya
lenses at great savings).

If this 10,000 Euros is actually right and Mam USA does their usual extortion
job it would likely sell for $15,000 - 20,000 in the USA, which is more in line
with what the 22 Mpixel backs are going for alone (I think the initial list
price for the Phase One 22 Mpix back is $29,900, for example).

At $10,000 US (very unlikely price) it would be a relative bargain for those
with Mamiya lenses. You'll pay $8,000 for a 16 Mpixel Canon 1Ds Mark II, for
example.

david-san ....

i'm still dithering about the 20d for 13 x 19" prints ....is the
measly 8.3 megapixels truly enough? i'm not really keen on carrying
the 1ds2 as it is fairly heavy ...

yoroshiku ....
