Doing all things Canon, MFT, Sony and Fuji
Not a surprise, they use the same Sony sensor as the rest so it only was expected for them to use the Sony 100mp sensor? PhaseOne went before them, and no doubt Hasselblad (and Pentax?) will follow.
..............Only "one" hundred?..........
It is projected to cost $9995.
It's not the same 100MP sensor Phase One uses as Phase One's 100MP camera is true 6x45.

I realized that, I did not mean that PhaseOne used the same sensor, I meant Phase one went 100mp before them (albeit "full frame" MF) and Pentax and Hasselblad will follow with the already announced 100mp Sony crop sensor.
I could have phased it better, yes.

Yes and perhaps it will cost $9995 when actually released. The question is will that (or whatever price actually appears) be considered expensive or cheap.
For a nearly just full frame (135 format) I consider it to be expensive. this MF crop is really not much bigger than 135 format (kinda like the difference between APS-C and MFT.
If it were a real MF size, I'd consider it to be cheap.
Claiming that 44x33 mm sensor is "nearly just full frame" shows total misunderstanding of this format. It is 1,7 times larger than "full frame". And the IQ diference is astonishing.
I just love how the defenders of the GFX always quite the area difference vs 35mm and say "it's 1.7 times larger". Every other system compares the length. 35mm is 1.5 times larger than APS-C if you compare the length of an edge. It's 2.25 times larger if you compare the area. 44x33 is closer to 35mm than APS-H is.

Even if you compare the shorter edges, where GFX has an advantage because it's 4:3 ratio, not 3:2, the difference is still tiny at 1.375.

And the IQ difference is not that great. Yes it's there, but it's not night and day. Again, the jump in IQ from APS-C to 35mm is greater than 35mm to 44x33.

It's just a good sensor. Leave it at that, you don't have to write poems and songs and create legends about how much better it is than 35mm digital sensors. Especially when the lens support is nowhere as close to what most 35mm systems have (even though the existing lenses are quite good).
