Maybe they don't have their software nailed down yet. From what I
understand you could use coke bottles as lenses. The software is what
makes things sharp. Part of the processing of a digital sensor is, at one
stage or another, to turn everything into mush. Then the software
eventually comes in and sharpens things up. So in the digital world it's
not a matter of who has the best optics but who has the best software. It
would make sense that the software is still in a beta stage and be the
last component to be put into production shape since it is so easy to fit
into the production line ... just download the new version and you're set.
