Interesting comparison. For 1/3 the price the Nikon is a bargain. Sort of like a Porsche Cayman against a Ferrari 458. For 95% of the time, the Cayman is just as good. Bottom line as said by the photographer, " clients don't want us showing up with the same camera they have!". Ego ( and money ) drives everything.

P.S. I use to shoot 90% of the time with Hasselblads.

They were WRONG!!! My clients don't give a rats ass about what material I use. If I am using it, it must be good. I have never in my 30 years in the business ever had a client bitch about my material. I don't use Blads. Too cumbersome and slow. Only once did a client ask for MF and that was for the Swarovski World Wide advertising campaign.
