From the “where did that come from” files – Apparently Samsung just announced the development of a new hybrid/EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) camera at PMA scheduled for the 2nd half of ’09. *with a full size APS-C sensor*
Seems like the success of the G1 is driving the industry, which is fantastic! There have been a lot of folks clamoring for something like this for a long time.
Of particular interest is the fact that samsung uses the Pentax K-mount for their SLRs, meaning that this camera could potentially work with the full range of K-mount lenses. A EVIL hybrid camera with the ability to use some amazing Pentax glass would basically be my dream camera.
The real question is, is Pentax going to have one of their own? (cue the “me kicking myself for selling my incredible Pentax primes”)
