It's disappointing that the Foveon FF sensor is still so far from production. I think its a technology with a significant amount of potential. Hopefully they can improve the color shift issues as ISO increases and improve the red/magenta color channel performance.

I would expect Sigma to go ahead and release a FF L-mount body with a standard sensor just to get a unit in the hands of users and get feedback on what they need to improve. That way when they are ready to produce a FF L-mount Foveon based camera they will be releasing a refined product.

I believe it has 6-stop IBIS and does very well as a handheld camera. Even at 100mps.

Sony has discontinued the 50MP MF sensor

They are, but the cost saving of doing that for the last 20+ years were more than worth it. No one system is perfect. They all have advantages and disadvantages. They are all vulnerable in some way.

Parts set aside for warranty and repair are completely different than parts for new manufacture. They will keep parts for warranty and repair for years after manufacturing has ceased.

Good question. Rumors by some Fuji people is that the GFX100s was pushed out a early. The $10,000 GFX100 is only a year old and now Fuji is releasing the 100s at $6,000. Apparently the 50s and 50r (same sensor as the 645z) are out of production. Fuji would have liked to have ran the 50s/50r one more year and leave the GFX100 alone at the top and then release the 100s. Fuji has been selling the 50s/50r remarkably well.


I did some marketing work for a window and door manufacturer 10 or so years ago and while walking the plant floor they told me that they only had enough inventory on hand to run the plant for 12 hours. Different parts suppliers are constantly delivering the needed parts to keep production going 24/7. Then he started talking about how Toyota revolutionized manufacturing and supply-chain management. most your major manufacturers only keep a few hours worth of inventory.

I have no idea how cameras are made, but inventory is not desirable for most modern manufacturing. If Ricoh has any 645z sensors they are probably sitting in 645z bodies in a warehouse.

The rumor is the Fuji 50s & 50r are going to be discontinued once the GFX100s starts shipping. The reason Fuji is putting the GFX100s right now is due to the end of the 50s & 50r.


The wafer that was used for the 50MP sensor is the same one used for the K-1 sensor so both should be nearing their end of life.

Will Ricoh update the 645z with a 100MP sensor or discontinue the MF line?

Hopefully it's a Foveon. That is a sensor that always appeared to have a lot of potential. I'm glad they found a home with Sigma.

Fuji Fiscal Year 2020

I think Fuji has done a phenomenal job. Fuji stopped making ILCs for several years and its not until the X-Pro 1 that they got back into the business and launched a new system and then launched the GFX system. Given how much they have accomplished and how far they have come in less than 10 years.... Yeah they are doing a great job. I hope they keep pushing the limits. That 100s for under $6,000 is amazing.

The first Plasma HD TV I ever say was made by Pioneer and cost over $10,000 for a 36" display. I have an old 46" Panasonic Plasma HD that I paid $600 several years ago. In 10 years 8K will probably be as common as 4K and just a cheap.... maybe cheaper.

When you say it's terrible, is that the max speed you can get in you area or is that the max speed that you want to pay for? Between 80-90% of the US population lives in or near enough to a large urban area that they have access to high speed internet either mobile or wired.

Panasonic make 8K displays. They need people creating 8K content or there is no reason to have 8K displays.

I really like using the S1R. with the latest firmware it's a great studio camera. Yeah they have to improve AF-C if they want to really compete..... Just like another company I know.

How's Panasonic doing? Other than AF, I think they make some of the better mirrorless cameras on the market, but just not going anywhere.

Hard to focus on much, and maybe it just my monitor or PF Forums image compression, but isn't there some pretty significant sharpening halos going on down her legs?

R6 is a great camera. Really impressed with how far they have come since the EOS-R. Once the fill out their F/1.8 prime line of lenses they will have a fantastic system. It would be awesome if the new Sigma ART glass was available for it, but I'm sure it will be soon.

Sony makes the sensors that Ricoh and other are using as well as some of the rear screens and EVFs and who knows what other components. How they are doing as a whole might be of some interest to some people.


If you're not interested then don't read about it.

I post the same thing when its Canon or Nikon, Olympus, or Panasonic. They all make more than cameras. The camera information is in the report. I'm not going to dig it out of the report for you. If you want the information, its all there. If you aren't interested.... don't read the report. Pretty simple actually.

Yes. What's your point? The article was about income overall not camera sales.
