Well that sounds like a much better use of your time than trolling the medium format threads.

As an outside observer in this thread (and someone who has owned both MFDB and 35mm gear and settled on 35mm gear) I tend to agree with Nick-T's post above.
The forum would be well served if you shared your knowledge in other threads, and didn't continually strive to create controversy in every medium format thread that came up.

Troll (Internet)

In Internet slang, a troll ( /ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

For your information I have been a photographer for 30 years, internationally publishes,

And what will you do next year Fred?  Arguing on the forums isn't a profession (even if you do it full time)  - no one pays you for it.   It has no value and no style points are awarded.

"And what will you do next year Fred?".... well lost of kitesurfing for starters... strapless and plenty of big surf...
"No one pays me for it".... not hear for the money ;)
"It has no value and no style points are awarded." not hear for some award...

"Arguing on the forums isn't a profession" I think you read my posts to LOUD ;)

Which, of course, describes precisely your motivation and behaviour in making that post in this thread.

I do believe it is time for LuLa to close this discussion.

I would like to see a mass-produced "mirror-less" (EVF) MF. Perhaps Samsung would make one? Or Sony? Reuse software and components from FF/crop/m43 cameras, bolt on a large cmos/ccd sensor, make it a mass-product, enjoy widespread positive PR. These guys have the software and components and capital to make a "streamlined" MF camera. The only issues are (in my mind):
1. What lense mount (and who gets to monopolize future lense purchases)
2. What sensor (can Sony make as good MF sensors as they currently are making FF? Would they?)
3. Where is the tipping point where such a product would be inexpensive enough while still having desirable quality/features so that it would appeal to a wide customer base, thereby allowing for mass-production?
