Quote:Thanks again Scythels. I did just see a preview on TDP and they say "Using the optical cancellation technique (vs. complete filter removal) greatly reduces development and implementation costs." Is that the case? Couldn't they just replace it with some "ordinary" optical glass to keep the same filter characteristic other than low pass effect? It just doesn't feel intuitive it would be easier to half-do something you don't want then undo it, unless there are other aspects I'm not considering which makes it more beneficial to take that route.Nikon did the same with the D800E.
The list price is kinda not surprising but means I'm not likely to bite for either model any time soon. Making assumptions on currency conversions, it's going to be some 50% more than a D810. No, I can't justify it on a per-pixel basis
It is cheaper because the "optical path" remains the same, production wise. Both cameras can be made in the same production line.
