With a new Sony 100-megapixel 44 X 33mm sensor shipping soon and PhaseOne already having announced a 100-megapixel camera based on it, can Fujifiulm and Hasselblad be far behind?
I’m really excited to see what 2018 brings on this front, but I do have one concern: with some of the Fujifilm GF lens quality issues (seen also by other readers with their own experience), a 100-megapixel sensor will just record more pixels of blur if everything is not perfect, and I mean spot-on with extreme demands on quality control, since the pixel pitch is 1.4X tighter (linearly).
In my experience with both, the Fufjilm GF lenses range from grades B+ to 'F', but all the Hasselblad lenses get an 'A'. So I see trouble ahead for Fujifilm GFX 100-S users—see for example the worst lens I ever have come across with one sample of the 110mm f/2. How that one made it out of the factory seems a bit ominous in terms of quality control. The 2nd sample was excellent, but that’s the point.
