Pricing just announced- $6500us body, lenses from $1300 - $2700
That's a lot of camera for the money, and Fuji make great cameras.

That's a crop factor of 0.79x with respect to full frame

Should be a ripper astro cam, if they're gentle with the IR filter...

It has a diagonal of 54.8mm which is a fraction larger than the 16803, 50mm square filters would world. Luckily my scope has a 55mm corrected imaging circle so it just fits

While you're waiting Rick, start buying stock in storage companies (hard disks, etc) - sales are going to go up...
