Nah, I hear Canon has a 42 gazzilion MP camera just around the corner. (and it must be true, it's been on the rumors forum for 3-4 years now)

Hey look, there's a cell phone that does this, and for much less, I mean I can get a Nokia and carry it in my pocket. What $375 on eBay, unlocked 32GB of memory. Nokia Lumia 1020 41MB smartphone. (shhh, it's really a group of 5MP photos, but so what, it's good marketing)

"A Hasselblad H5D-50 with an 80mm f/2.8 lens costs $30,000 right now"

I'm sure you are aware I just bought a home with an acre and a half of land, for $33,000 and it should go up in value and not be obsolete in five years. LOL

Nope medium format is dead, people will be moving to cell phones... I read about it on the web.  ;) Everything on the Internet is true.

ps Neat camera, looks pretty too.

The same sensor will apparently be used in the new model 645D from Pentax.  Better ergonomics and dramatically lower pice point, estimated $10k.  But it won`t have that Hassie sticker on it.:-)

Seriously? For microstock? I think 41MP Nokia phone should be enough :-)

Taking the Hassy blurb with a big dose of CMOS. Phase One also has a CMOS sensor, the IQ 250. The great advantage of CMOS compared to CCD is that they're also much cheaper to produce! And yeah...for microstock? Who are we kidding!

Hasselblad - I've just checked my jam jar and I am now in a position to make a substantial down payment of 4.70.......in cash

Seriously, thirty large would hire a fully kitted out studio with a floating ceiling, vehicle access, mock home living areas and a changing/makeup room for 2-3 months. Or a night out in Monte Carlo with Beyonce.
