Sony 100 megapixel IMX211 sensor in $50K Phase One XF 100MP - YouTube
So this will still fit the new fuji mount, or not?

EDIT: Ah.. sorry I guess I kinda figured it out myself. Based on the graph the new 100mp "imx461" is supposed to be "type 3.6" size whatever that is (I guess the smaller crop mf sensor). The current 100mp "imx211" in the phase one is larger, "type 4.2" (incompatible with fuji?). The upcoming "imx411" is 150mp and "type 4.2" (again incompatible with fuji?).

Its no way to know if the "large" MF sensor will find its way to Fuji GFX or Hassy X1D. Even if the diagonal is larger then the mount diameter, it may be compatible. Mount diameter and sensor diagonal is not related in that way. Many lenses have far less back lens diameter then the sensor diagonal, but still covers the whole sensor. We just have to wait and see.

I'll buy the first 100 MP MILC that comes down the pike that isn't priced like a Phase One. I thought about Pentax being the first to jump on this sensor but they have been very lax in updating their lens lineup for digital. Hopefully, Fuji has sent a strong message that $4k lenses are not good deals.

However, the DFA90 macro is utterly superb, as is the 28-45 zoom. Maybe not superlative value for money, but the best of their kind in existence. That said if I could have bought them for $2k I would have been even more satisfied with the product. To me though the problem remains no new, or simply updated, lenses for the Z for too long. I have no need of a 35mm as the 28-45 is excellent at 35 as it is.

I feel like what the system needs most is a truly up-to-date 150mm f2.8, 200mm f4 and 80-160 f4.5. Oh and my personal hobbyhorse: a 21mm f2.4 to really own the Astro market!
