    They're getting closer and closer to the perfect hybrid camera, eh? Won't be long before the lens detaches, and the LCD is bigger, and that big ol' handle thing shrinks to nothing. Put the button on the bottom, add Sony's equivalent of VR, ... yep things will look very different in 10 years. They'll have SLR style cameras in cases in museums, and young photographers will wonder how we could ever take pictures with such HUGE cameras, like we wonder at view cameras now.

    hi ken-

    dpreview has a review of the R-1. it has a few shortcomings that make it a less than ideal replacement for a dslr.

    one interesting spec is that the sensor is supposed to be a scaled down version of the sensor in the D2X.
