Mamiya whips out new 56MP and 33MP DSLRs

A few years back I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D80. I remember thinking that the thing had tons of resolution with its 10MP sensor. Today that much resolution is nothing to write home about and is lower than many cameras offer. A company called Mamiya has unveiled a pair of new DSLRs called the DM56 and DM33 that give me megapixel envy.

The DM56 has a 56MP sensor and the DM33 has a 33MP sensor. Both of the cameras are medium format DSLRs and aimed at the pro photographer. The cameras feature high flash sync speeds up to 1/6000 of a second and new three leaf-shutter digital lenses.

The lenses were developed in conjunction with Schneider Kreuznach and are manufactured my Mamiya. The lenses include the 55mm f/2.8 D L/S, 80mm f/2.8 D L/S, and 110mm f/2.8 S L/S, which will all start shipping on Q4. Exact pricing and availability for the cameras is unknown, but these things have to fall into the “if you have to ask” category.
