to be successfull

it would have to be accessible for the enthusiast amateur as many of the pros likely have switched systems long time ago. I therefore hope for a kit with the 55m for under $5.000 ...

/$10,000 or 6000

Would anyone like to guess what they think the price of the Pentax 645D will come in at? Could be interesting to see who has really good intuition...
This would put it within reach of pros using a 1DS Mk2 and would undercut the 30+ MP phase1 back competition by some margin. It depends to some extent on how much Kodak are charging for the sensor, but I can't imagine there is no room for profit margin at that price.

If they do it a lot lower, I'd be very impressed.

I like Alvin's guess, not that, that is anywhere near affordable for me. Not that it is even a system I need, but I can lust can't I? I'm just not sure if that is an out of the gate price or an after the dust settles price. Maybe they can end up getting it down a grand to body only, on the street to $9K Can within a year of launch.

Just because Kodak sensors don't grow on trees, I'd say 13,000 euros (with 55mm lens).
