guess where all the research money goes these days ...
The cruise ship image in the article looks very convincing.
I know that pixels for the sake of pixels is not the aim of MF, but at some point one does wonder whether MF buyers are getting value for money.

There was a recent article on a 1/1.7 sensor phone camera, capturing the milky way.

Certainly the phone sized sensors are going to push the technology of image capture forward, whether they will replace a traditional camera is hard to say, as the notion of serious photography is somewhat intertwined with a larger "setup."

The MFD debate has usually mentioned a megapixel advantage so I think it is fair to consider that as part of any comparison to other formats.
