Re: why is 1/125 sync a deal breaker?

125th sync of the 645d was a deal breaker for me.

Sync speeds of MF cameras are slowwwwwww because their shutter curtains are bigggggggg. They've always used leaf shutter lenses to workaround this and get an effective sync speed of 1/800...

Hell, my Hassy 500 C/M could sync at all speeds up to 1/500th, and that was decades ago. I guess the new stuff isn't as good.

for the OP: Big pixels always have more DR...it's just physics...
