I think a heck of a lot of photographers would get into MFD image quality … IF … the price is "relatively" reasonable, and it's not a brick to carry around. fotografz
Actually, I think several cameras such as the Sigma DP Merrill's(DP3), D800/e, and Sony's A7/r come pretty close to MFD in image quality in certain set ups. Not one single MFD camera shoots broadcast quality video either. I've shot with most of them and only find certain lenses(dof), and flash sync to be the real difference. Of course, leaf shutters are the key for strobes and studio work, and anything that needs to be printed billboard size, but for all those who are already speculating about what's the next technology - you'll never be satisfied. Today's digital cameras are incredibly superior to anything imagined, and every one of them takes a good photo. With all due respect, this thread just feeds the planned obsolescence machine that companies love because the next gimmick is coming soon to your favorite camera store.
I can't imagine having any more tech built into today's current offerings! you've got Wi FI, GPS, broadcast quality video, HSS, Hyper sync, numerous AF points, panorama, HDR, scene modes, auto everything, fast shooting modes, etc. Today's photographers are an increasingly lazy bunch who seem content to suckle on the teat of digital photography's marketing. Don't get me wrong new tech can be innovative, but the A7 is a game changer as far as 35mm FF DSLR's go. Can't we just enjoy this for a while before we feel inadequate...again?
