What the heck is 0.66 crop?
If I were Nikon I would produce a DX sensor based EVF system first because the cost should be lower and the market greater. Then I would add a FX sensor based counterpart.
DX is a 1.5 crop. 24x36 divided by 1.5 becomes 16x24.With a 0.66 crop, 24x36 divided by 0.66 becomes 36x54.OK, so the "0.66 crop" term is not catching fire, but the math works even though it is not really being cropped. What would you guys call it?
That is not really my point. My point is simply that the price will come down. Some will say 1 year. Some will say 1,000 years. Good that we all agree. Now the only question is how efficient Moore's law's benefits will translate into a lower price.
I would like to see small DX sensor based EVF cameras developed by Nikon. Take the Sony A7 design. Shrink it as much as possible for use with a DX sensor allowing the sensor to lens mount flange distance to shrink. Use the 24mp DX sensor from the D7100. Take the good 18-55 kit lens. Make an improved redesigned version as small as possible and reduce the sensor to rear of lens distance. Now you have a small, general purpose camera which will suit many people's needs and desires. Retain the ability to use all Nikkor lenses by producing a small spacer (like a tele-extender) to return to the normal sensor to flange distance. Produce a few new lenses such as pancake lenses equivalent to FX 28mm and 40mm lenses for those who want to be able to pocket this camera.
