To stop salivating on this Hasselblad:
https://fstoppers.com/originals/hasselblad-h6d-100c-comparison-review-full-frame-out-performs-medium-format-191500
At the conclusion:
"Poor performing lenses
Terrible build quality
Consistent bugs and glitches
Slow and lacking focusing system
The price in no way reflects the performance"

But I'm happy that it exists, competition is always good.

Anadrol: Honestly I don't get the appeal for this camera (considering the price), it's only 50MP vs 42MP for the A7R3, and the lenses are slower even if you take into account the equivalence.
Of course if/when it will use the announced 100MP Sony sensor it will change the equation.

@Teila Day Thank you very much, I was indeed not belittling !
I just feel that Fuji / Hasselblad medium format cameras, with current sensors, aren't worth the 2 to 3 times cost for the system compared to the many FF offerings.
Of course if soon you could shoot 100MP it would change the utility/cost of these new MF mirrorless systems.

But even then, I have doubts:
https://fstoppers.com/originals/hasselblad-h6d-100c-comparison-review-full-frame-out-performs-medium-format-191500
"Unfortunately, when it comes to detail and sharpness the Hasselblad lenses really fall short and are incapable of producing the high level that they are presumed to be able to do. In every test completed, lenses like Zeiss, Sigma Art, and even some well-known Canon lenses out performed the Hasselblad lenses in sharpness and detail.
Even with the extra megapixels, Hasselblad lenses simply can't render all of the resolution available to them. "

Many complain here, but be happy that competition drives developments toward better IQ.

Anadrol: Does the multi shot pixel shift system NEED to use a tripod ?

On the Sony brochure it's written recommended, but not mandatory though.

PhotoUniverse: My top faves are:
1) Better battery life
2) Touch screen
3) USB-C for my MacBook Pro

I only wish they introduced a newer sensor. At the end, we're talking about Sony and its great sensor technology.

And also Sony must keep higher res sensor for the A7R4 !

maljo@inreach.com: Same sensor, which is ok because its a good sensor, but seems to give Nikon a bit of breathing room. If this had been a 60 mp sensor...

Well I was actually very surprised myself, I did read an article where scientists did measure sensors raw sensitivity before software kicked in, I don't remember exactly but to sum up it evolved more thanks to software than hardware.
Myself I would have guessed that hardware is more important.
I was speaking specifically about noise handling, not MP count.

From what I've read, noise handling improvements last decade came mostly from the software side, hardware got better of course but it's not, surprisingly, the biggest contributor to IQ.

The Nexus One was teflon coated (instead of regular plastic), it had such a nice feel !
I'm surprised that nobody did make teflon coated phones again, it is light and solid (unlike glass).

On article Leica M10 added to the studio comparison tool (208 comments in total)
In reply to:

Cornu: Just our of curiosity, I selected the YI M1 instead of the A9 to get an idea of how big a difference we are talking about here.
If I put the Leica M10 to 12800 ISO, the Nikon D750 to 25600 ISO and the YI M1 to 3200 ISO, all in raw, the results look quite comparable to me.

Maybe just use the same ISO setting for all cameras ? :D

minababe: Why is everyone hating on PETA? The real enemy is Wikipedia, whose actions are what opened Slater to this type of frivolous lawsuit in the first place and is helping to further erode and redefine the concept of authorship in the minds of the public.

@Bobthearch We are tired of your trolling, just go on the PETA forum...

Gary Martin: Sorry PETA: I totally support your overall mission in fighting abuse and cruelty to animals, but idiotic pursuits like this undermine your cause. Less dogma and more practicality will protect more animals.

97.3% of animals under PETA's care have been killed in one year:

Wes: Seriously... what is the point of any animal holding a copyright? Animals cannot comprehend human abstractions like copyrights, they can't exploit or benefit them. Only humans can do this.
This is just one f-ed up group of opportunistic psycho-activists stirring the pot to paint humans as evil and get attention. It solves no pressing issue, furthers no cause, protects no animals from any real or imaged abuses.
Its pure theater.
The fact that the courts allowed this crap to go on for so long is the true disgrace in all of this. PETA and their moronic lawyers should have been summarily kicked out of court with a big fat fine and damages paid to Slater.

Spot on ! Meanwhile courts don't have time for important matters.
