The new Hasselblad H5D-200c MS camera can reach 200MP resolution

Hasselblad announced a new H5D-200c MS medium format camera (not to be confused with the current H5D-200MS model) that can reach 200 MP resolution with the help of the Multi-Shot (MS) capture technology:

Sony QX1 camera, new 35mm f/1.4G and 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G A-mount lenses rumored for Photokina

Sony has filed for a "Certificate of Compliance" in Russia for two new cameras labeled as ILCE-QX1 and ILCE-QX1L. I find it strange that the QX1/QX1L are described as "Digital camera / Interchangeable lens digital camera" since the current Sony QX10 and QX100 models are lens camera modules that attach to a smart phone and not an ILC.

Sony is expected to also announce a new QX30 camera.

In terms of lenses, I received some information that at Photokina Sony will release new versions of the 35mm f/1.4G and the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G A-mount lenses.
