I see Canikon as the Fords and Vauxhalls of the camera world , with the smaller , more specialised makers such as Pentax and Hasselblad as the Mercedes or Porsche with better engineered products at each price point and ranges which go somewhat higher than the mainstream makes .

Hasselblad maybe, but Pentax offerings are right in line with CaNikon both in price and quality. Nikon has the top FX and DX DSLRs despite being the "Ford" of cameras. Pentax, Olympus etc are more like the Mazdas and Hyundais of the camera world.

Do folks actually  read the OP's freak'n question or just ignore it completely and write what they  want to write about when responding in this thread?

Hasselblad does not have a FF system.

Pentax does not have a FF system.

FYI , I was replying to something written by another contributor - which is why I quoted the other contributor . It was not a response to the OP's question .

Actually , Hasselblad DOES have a FF system , based on a 6x6 MF frame , and it is highly probable that Pentax will have a 35mm digital FF system sometime next year , which will be fully compatible with their well established inventory of lenses and consolidated in 5 years time , as well as their existing MF and APSC systems .

There is a world of photography above and beyond 35mm
With kind regards
