My pipe dream is that someone, well, Fuji specifically :-) would make a

18x49mm sensor, and build a digital RF system for it. The sensor size is
just about the same size as the "full frame" 35mm, so the technology and
cost is known (remember that full frame Canon and Sony are as "low" as

The result would of course be a cropped digital XPan. The lens should be
much easier to design - heck, lets make them all F2.8 while we are at it.

Sell the whole system with 3 lens (30, 45 and 90 equivalent) for $10,000 to
$12,000, and I bet they will sell at least as many of that as Pentax 645D.
