I was surveying some of my old equipment the other day and started messing with my 1N-RS. Then I starting thinking about MY ultimate DSLR. Basically a full-frame, 12.8mp, 15 fps, pellicle mirror, sealed sensor, and silent operation. This would be a journalists dream. My RS would be virtually silent if it were not for the film transport. A DSLR doesn't have a film transport and the carbon fibre shutter WOULD be nearly silent. Imagine firing off 15 fps without distracting your primary or his/her cohorts (security). And without a mirror to flip, the sensor could be hermetically sealed agains dust. Anyway, just thinking out loud.
