More likely $2,499 or $2,495....bets anyone?
We've been told for a long time that moire on medium format can be made to disappear or reduced greatly as megapixels go up.
That's a win-win for the makers as more megapixels distinguishes them from the dslr competition (though that boat has probably sailed). For the people that want it they can get more detail and less moire and post production issues.
The only problem comes from what you shoot. Shooting people the backs get way slower at these huge file sizes, storage costs go up, heavier computer power is needed to post process and regardless of some new lcds' medium format and computers go hand in hand, always will.
Nothing wrong with that in a professional atmosphere, but once again if you want to pop open the crystal ball of image making look first to the lower entry dslrs.
They have movie capabilities, (even Nikon has movie autofocus), in camera hdr, color correction, even some simple retouching functions.
Those features will eventually work their way up to the higher end professional cameras and that is where every one needs to be looking. Not at the Bentley of cameras but the Kia's, because that's where the real innovation is coming from.
Professionals are in a weird place right now. We've all added motion, all been expected to produce very close to commercial grade video along with high rez stills with double the on set workload, in 1/2 the post production delivery time, even on large budget high end productions.
So opening up my crystal ball and checking through dp review I have a feeling that whoever wins will offer a more robust, faster, quicker, better Nikon 5100, whether that be medium format still makers, RED, Arri, Canon, Nikon . . . the list goes one.
Also gazing in the future I bet in a few years the word moire in digital capture just doesn't exist.
