About whether an impressive Hasseblad is needed in applications where results are similar to a D800 ...

For well-informed clients, no.

For poorly-informed clients (but with checkbooks), yes.

I guess some photographers get to a point where they turn down jobs because a client (aka boss) is poorly-informed about equipment.

Being right doesn't pay the rent unless you've reached the level of famous diva-tographer.

I imagine if the job called for some work that required an ISO higher than 200, the choice would be really simple. I was surprised at how noisy the Hassy was. Not even in the same class as my GH3, it seems. For that kind of money I'd expect better.
