on another thread. I'd like to share them here, too. Can a merge be done, by the way?
So many manufacturers are in on the project. It's got overwhelming support.
The first to be released is a compact fixed-lens with a manual winder. I will get that. I am not sure if I will skip the advanced SLR as the SFX that I have here still works. If the DC and PLM lenses will work with the advanced SLR, that's a different experience. The full-manual one is a must-have for me.
Regarding the question of @gordo
regarding the release, we're not sure. Knowing Pentax they may announce tomorrow and release in 5 months, announce tomorrow and release in 5 or 10 years? Haha. TKO, the one in the video, can be followed and he shares a a lot of info about the project.
Mm, does MFT match medium format film these days?

It's difficult to answer, but for me, it's apples and oranges. Film is actual light while digital is a simulation. Check out Fuji's film stocks when scanned vs their film simulations.
Regarding MFT or digital, in general, matching film, for me, it depends on the final product of the shooter. If the final product is a soft-copy/digital one and is to be viewed on a laptop, smartphone or a 27" 8K screen, no cropping, there is a chance that good colour science can match medium format film. If the final product is to be pixel-peeped, medium format film will provide a lot of details but the digital equivalent will depend on the scanning sampling of the film. If the prints are 10x15cm, even 20MP 1" sensors can match medium format film with a good simulation. Large format printing depends on the sampling, printer, paper, etc. so the final product varies.
Overall, though, a 12MP MFT has waaaaay too much data and resolution for me already. B&W A2 prints with the GF1, for example, are already too glorious. With that aside, we can all happily go out and enjoy lighting and composition!!!
