MrSkelter: RRS stuff is over-rated and your money helps fund anti-human rights legislation which targets the families and rights of gay people sponsored by the owner. For those who care it's worth giving them a miss for that reason alone. I know I don't want my money going to fund hate.

RRS stuff is overrated by who?? I have used many different heads and tripods and RRS stuff is very high quality..

iShootWideOpen: There is nothing special about any of the Schneider lenses made for the Phase mount. The Hassy H lenses are superior in every way.
While Leica and Zeiss are the Porsche and Mercedes of the optics world, Schneider is VW.

The phase lenses are all made by Mamiya,Schneider only design the leaf shutters..

The Schneiders I have used were good but I prefer Zeiss/Leica and the Tech cam glass is excellent but I prefer Rodenstock..

Photoman: Wait till Sigma release their 85/1.4 lens. 1/4 price and better quality, like their 50/1.4 ART lens.

In no way will the Sigma beat this on IQ..it may come close and for a lot less dough but if you want the best glass then this is it..

Optically an amazing lens and one that will attract the cine guys in drove's given that its a bargain compared to Zeiss or Cooke cine glass.... I'm buying it. ;-)

Kinematic Digit: Expect a 2 or more year wait for this. Most of my associates that shoot with the S2 have been so frustrated by the timelines for their lenses.

The only one thats been hard to buy is the Zoom... and maybe the 24mm

RStyga: The Pentax 90mm f/2.8 D FA 645 Macro ED AW SR Lens costs less than half of this lens and offers weather sealing, shake reduction, and macro focusing in a comparable -not identical- focal length and maximum aperture.

In my opinion, for non-professional use, it makes no sense to choose the S system over the 645. In many case, even for professional use.

Who cares what the Pentax lense offers? The S system is excellent with a full range of excellent and most of them have leaf shutter options which is unavailable for the Pentax system and for quite a few pro's this rules out the pentax.

The pentax Glass is not bad,the 90mm is the best of the bunch but in no way is it better than S glass except in price of course!

Brian Alpert: i wonder how many terabytes of RAM you'll need to process these 200 mp images in lightroom.

Not as many as you think..32gb would be fine,I process iq280 files with layers (5GB files with layers) and they're no problem with 32gb..

rj conklin: the editors of dpr failed to mention its a SONY sensor?

http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/hasselblad-h5d-with-sony-sensor-can-take-200-megapixel-pictures/

Everyone knows its a sony sensor,the same sensor as one one used in the IQ250 and Pentax 645Z.

Boss of Sony: TWO REASONS WHY CAMERA COMPANIES ARE LOSING MONEY: 1. Capitalism is dying (finally), because it is based on faulty mathematics, so it has to end at some point. 2. NOBODY CARES ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY ANYMORE. The only people who care are the obsessives who think looking at an inferior 2-D representation of something on a screen is better than appreciating the real thing with your eyes in real time. Now that everone has a camera, people are waking up and thinking, what the hell is the point of photography? Why don't I just look at the world with my eyes and stop wasting valuable resources and valuable time doing a pointless activity?

Hilarious...

This will sell,regardless of the Pentax because a lot of people love using the V system and while its expensive its still a lot cheaper than the IQ250..

Besides Leaf shutters are important to some people...

In reply to:

MarcMedios: So... following Leica's journey from real camera to fashion accesory, Hasselblad --up until now the standard in large format photography-- has also become a fashion accesory and "certifies" cell phone cameras in an $11,000 cell phone. I don't know about the Swedes, but at least the Japanese had the inner strength to commit suicide when their dignity was lost.

This is a simple licensing deal and if it helps Hasselblad survive that whats the problem?And Hasselblad is medium format not large and Leica still makes amazing gear.

Thorgrem: Very nice to see big professional tele lenses which arent ugly white. Or does this one also comes in white?

I use a Nikon super tele.. and believe me, they can get very hot in the sun!!

Jogger: I like my Nikon 50/1.4G because its small and compact for when i travel light... if youre going to carry a monster like this, might as well take an f2.8 zoom for add flexibility, better AF speed, etc.

This is a low light specialist..different tool to the zoom!

In reply to:

simpleshot: The DXO test comes out with the same result as the tests from SLR gear and Digital Picture. They all confirm that:
1. The Sigma is sharper than the Otus, except in the corners.
2. The Sigma has less vignetting than the Otus.
3. The Sigma has less distortion than the Otus.
For all of that, the Sigma only costs $950 as opposed to $4000 for the Otus.
The Sigma has AF, which makes it a lot more practical.

I'm going to buy this lens for sure..amazing value for the money..although I'll still lust after an Otus!
