So we are now into 2018 and the first photographic show off the year been to in London mainly for the trade but managed to wangle a couple off passes
Lots off stands promoting albums and the like studio lighting a few camera manufacturers
Funny thing was no nikon but .canon Sony Fuji and Panasonic was there even Pentax was there with the 645z and lenses
So the Q had to be asked if there was any thing new on the horizon this year and the answer I got was it was going to be an exciting year
When asked what that would be I was told he could not say and then he went off to say that later this year Sony are releasing a new medium format sencor so there could be a new 645 comming later this year
And as for the curved sencor thats new to him

Hum it dose especially with the size off the new Sony sencer at the magical 100 mega pixel

I wonder if a new 645 camera might actually have a full 645 sensor rather than a cropped version. The current crop sensor in the 645d&z is 44x33mm which isn't that much larger than the 36x24mm of the K-1. A 'full frame' 645 sensor would be 56x42mm.
I'm not sure cramming 100mp into the current sensor size would achieve much.

Let me just check my bank balance.... No still can't afford a 645, never mind a new one with an even bigger sensor.
Nothing more exciting than that on the horizon?
Ah well, I'll stick with the K5ii.
