Is it just me or is this not a good price? I always thought the medium format Hasselblad cameras cost like $30,000 or $40,000. But this one costs $12,000. For a camera that is almost $10,000 it is getting in competition range of the 1Ds Mark IIII suppose I would still say the 5D Mark II is the ultimate microstock camera, but I have to admit I still dream of a medium sized sensor from time to time.edit: oh wait, it gets even cheaper. The first one I linked to was including an 80mm lens. the camera alone 'only' costs just under $10,000. Hasselblad H3DII-31
I don't believe you can say that medium format always beats 35mm any longer. That was true for film because the "sensor quality" (the film) was identical for the two formats so having a negative almost four times the size (on 6x6) was effectively increasing the resolution of the camera. With digital, all sorts of things come into play, such as pixel size and quality, and your resolution comes from the pixel count not the sensor size.
I have to disagree with you (at least a little)I think especially in current situation medium format beats 35mm, because best (20+ megapixels) 35mm cameras are already outresolving many lenses. At least my 5D mk II is "better" than any cheap zoom at any setting, or any lens with biggest aperture.There is not going to be a miraculous breaktrough in lens quality -> the only way to get more detail is to get a bigger sensor.
