Buy a used one in 6-month for half price. THAT IS NOT AN EXAGERATION!
Theres a guy selling his less than one year old IQ 250 for $19K. That back sells for close to $40K new.
I bought my Hasselblad H4D-40 used for $10,500 when it was selling for over $20K new.
As good as MFDB are today, they are heavily overpriced. And Phase leads customer gauging more than anyone else, including Leica.

LOL at anyone using the 5Ds with a glorified iPhone Photo app.

D610 User 1867: At first it felt like the iOS designers weren't talking to the OS X engineers (AirDrop anyone?), now it feels like the iOS designers are taking over Apple.

The kids have taken over the adults software.

For a nano second I considered saving $1800 and buying the Tamron over the Canon 11-24L. After seeing tests on digital-picture and lens rental I feel better about my move.

On Go wide! Hands-on with Canon's 11-24mm F4 L article (229 comments in total)

I just pre-ordered mine through B&H. Unfortunately I needed get rid of my excellent 16-35L IS to make room. So now I'm pretty set as wides go with a TS-E 17 & 24, Canon FD TS-E 35, 24-70L II, and Sigma 35. I'm still going to miss the 16-35L IS.

I helped the mirrorless segment by selling my Fuji XT-1 and an array of prime lenses last week. Going back to my primitive DSLR's.

They must have manufactured 10 and had demand for 12.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (92 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ken Sky: Why is the review framed as " the best Android phone"? Doesn't the reviewer know that the smartphone market is dominated by the Apple iPhone? Surely the comparison should be against the 5s. I recognize the 6 will appear in the not too distant future but as of July 2014 this phone appears to be the best on the market.
P.S. I use an iPhone 5.

Typical Android drones. You think you're too smart to be fooled by Apple's marketing.
Ask your phones manufactures and OS maker where they get their inspiration.

So they are saying this sensor will hide all the flaws in the mostly less than stellar Sony lenses.

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.

DXO is about useful for measuring optics as a robot is for making love matches for humans. Any device that measures a Tamron 24-70 and 70-200 superior to Canon 24-70L II and 70-200L II is to be disregarded.

I have a Littman 45 Single but haven't used it for two years. Need to break out some Fuji quickloads and Polaroid Type 55's and go out shooting.

Snowbird_UT: When are they gonna drop the mirror. Of all the systems that could benefit of going mirrorless I would think this one wins hands down. They could make adapters for all those legacy lenses easily enough.

No thanks! Have a look at a medium format viewfinder and every EVF out there will look a like a peep hole after a storm.

A better version of the D4S has been out a while, it's a 1DX. No "S" needed at the end of the X.

You guys need to put this camera in capable hands to get a good impression. These snaps make the camera look bad.
