DavidsfotosDotCom: What's the dynamic range?

14 stops.

mosc: 0.64 crop right? So that 150 would be 96mm f1.8 equiv? I'm confused. Is the sensor even bigger than I'm thinking?

That's slightly more depth of field (smaller aperture) than the 85mm f1.4 sigma art that just came out.

This system can shoot at very shallow DOF in bright light, your 35mm system would need ND filters to do the same!!

Ugo78: I've always heard that medium format was THE way for the shallowest DOF possible. Maybe it is correct for the analogic medium format, but it seems that it's not true anymore for the digital one, usually sporting a "mere" 0,6... crop factor (if not higher).
The FF system seems more capable of providing the shallowest DOF, offering lenses like 24 f1.4, 35 f 1.4, 50 f1.2, 85 f1.2, and so on...
Am I missing something?

For fashion photography these MF lenses can do shallow DOF in much brighter light.

Kudos to Hasselblad for this new camera,its very interesting and will get even better in successive generations, now for some fast primes with good wide open performance.

stevo23: So I'm wondering...should I get the D5 now, or wait for the D6 when it comes out? (I love it when people ask that question, couldn't resist.)

Wait for the D7!!

I digress but this phone is selling really well with music lovers because of its ability to play high res 24bit files ,it also has apple airplay which is a first for an Android phone.

For most buyers the camera is good enough!

BigOne: Chinese crap at least used to be cheap. Not anymore.

"Though it's also less crap than it was. Even iPhones are Chinese..."

There's a big difference between made in China and assembled in China!!

aris14: I really can't see the needs of 100 Mp, but it's professionals cup of cake.
I really wonder who can see the difference of a 50 Mp image compared to an originally shot 100 Mp, no matter the final size to be printed.
Anyway, pros problems and tastes.

100mp will be sweet on an Alpa with Rodenstock HR glass!!This back is amazing and a fair bit cheaper than the IQ 100mp.

Flashback: Despite all that's evolved in last 10 to 15 years, the very mention of Hasselblad, still maintains that promise of absolute quality.

Any of the Hasselblad Camers's I've tried over the last few years all rendered beautiful skin tones,still great camera's and Phocus is a nice app!!

Nice to see Hasselblad back in the mix, Now they should go and revise some of the glass , they need more HC (as opposed too HCD ) glass of top quality to make the most of the sensor!

Always something on the horizon.

" This was first published in September 2005 " Obviously never took off!!

Good news for Canon users but still lagging behind the best of Sony and CMOSIS!

In reply to:

Lassoni: Subscription based software will never be overly popular. Ppl already hate adobe for doing it, this is not a very good strategy from the other software producers. Only reason adobe is getting some slack (by some people) is because it had been used by many in the past already (photoshop and their other programs), and because they're offering more than 1 software with their cloud.

It's not subscription based.

nicolaiecostel: Why buy the Otus ?

@ stevo23 Point is why did the OP even bother to compare the lens to the Otus? The Otus is a different class!

Futile comparison,the Otus is a tour de force in optical engineering,IQ is stunning!

Daft Punk: A reminder that Canon lenses are the reason to stick with Canon.

The Cameras ? So so. If it was not for the lenses why stick around?

The 1DX mk2 sensor might change that.. we'll know soon!!
