Nikon Z roadmap
#40
I believe we are already deep into offtopic territory, but I'll give it a last chance.

While I was sharing your thoughts exactly just until couple of weeks ago, Brightcolours (you can see it my previous posts), I came to realize that a camera is not just a sensor. In fact, this is why I have been shooting Fujifilm for so much time - great ergonomics, but nothing revolutionary on IQ department. I thought that no other system may provide a more balanced system, yet - when I spent reading and comparing stuff for months, it turned out that the Z is miles ahead, if you can accept just slightly heavier system.

And this is what is the crutial thing to understand - if you are not a consumer, buying low-tier camera body with a kit lens, the overall system matters, and that includes everything - lenses, accessories, future development, image quality, costs, balance - everything. Yes, the Canon might be good, but the sensor is too densly packed for most of the lenses, which are just too few and possibly Canon will give up on M anyway. Same for DSLR cameras from Canon and Nikon with APS-C. Sony is not great at ergonomics. Fuji offers XTrans and limits their lenses to keep them compact. I don't even want to mention Pentax and Leica, although they deserve more attention.

The bottom line is - even if APS-C is good enough, there are no systems that are designed without the size constraint, and even if you go for FF lenses on APS-C, there should be a deliberate choice - you get better reach and possibly more even sharpness, but resolving power will be constrained, and noise/DR will be worse.

No free lunch!
