Ridiculous. The copyright of a building should be on the architectural design and construction. Not in a visual image. It is as if it would be forbidden to write about a musical composition. Copyrights are also limited in time. Most of the buildings in a city are too old to fall under the copyright laws. And should we pay every time we come out soon. We cannot avoid these public buildings to come in our sight.

GuyMcKie: Big heavy and expensive lenses, where CA, vignetting and distortion are corrected in camera. Is that a progress? Compared with the excellent AF and very compact 28mm f2.0, 35mm f2.0, 100mm f2.0, 200mm f2.8 from Minolta. It's more difficult to design an compact lens and it needs a more accurate assembly.

Look at photozone.de. 3,84% barrel distortion at 24mm and 3% pincsh uncorrected. Uncorrected vignetting at 24mm f4.0 is 2,49 EV. Not really impressive for such a pricey lens.

That's the case for the current existing zeiss lenses in this lens series. Vignetting of 2,6 EV at 2.8 for the zeiss 35mm. High distortion above 3% on 24mm and 70mm for the zeis 24-70 f4.0.

It was an insult to the real design tradition in Italy.

The skin is like a credit default swap, expensive and without value. Destroying a good camera keeping the sensor heat in.

Carl Sanders: "Hasselblad plans to release a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera utilizing Sony's E-Mount."....Forgive them Victor, for they know not what they do!

I think Sony plans to release a medium format mirrorles with the Hasselblad mount and the Hasselblad name.

Are these prototypes the models for the current winter season or for the next spring season?

In reply to:

wepwawet: They actually rebadged the crappy $100 18-55 kit lens. How much will they be selling it for? This is even more pathetic than the body...

Take a look at their hasselblad-lunar.com website, where you can dowload their high resolution brochure.

I wonder how much they will be selling their newly developed A-mount adapter with translucent mirror, or the lenses in their A-mount line as the 35mm 1.4 G or the 500mm 4.0.

They need a strap designed by Gucci and a camera case from Luis Vuitton.

zoomf: It should be more exclusive and cost more!

Wait for the limited gold plated edition of the FF HX1 with fixed zeiss lens.
