On article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D (816 comments in total)

Sony, hear me:
Now we have a mirrorless MF however with exclusive leaf-shutter lenses but also (with adapter) older lenses again with leaf shutters. And we have a bunch of MF-DSLRs with mirror.... I think it's time to introduce a mirrorless MF with focal plane shutter so that a great deal of us could use their existing MF lenses- almost any MF lenses- like you have done with the A7-series...

Another X-Pan possibility: Two 42MP FF Sony sensors side-by-side, output integrated via SW, with fixed or interchangeable lenses covering at least 76mm illumination circle (not much problem for Hasselblad.) 84MP panaromic camera is quite attractive.

Decades long "Magnum quality" has been associated with highest achievement, accomplishment, mastery, admiration, compliment.... The photos here hardly evokes anything positive.

Dear dpr,

Most of us can not afford a D5 or 1DXII but still need a camera with excellent AF capabilities and "reasonable" cost. How about taking one of these two as reference and running a comparative test involving the D500, 7DII and A6300 so that we could have a clear and objective idea where each could stand concerning AF and responsiveness? I am sure this will receive more interest than the top-two pro cameras.

Does it take selfie?

"However, the Canon still can't match the Nikon's uncanny ability to track objects reliably and accurately as they progress across the frame while also coming toward or moving away from the camera." (Sums it up nicely and neatly..)

Did something like this ever happened to Nikon or Canon?

@ odpisan: With Slovenian mind better not try to judge what happens in the states.. Only in LA probably 10 times more D800E was sold than what it did in entire Slovenia..

Many times... I have waited six months for the 800E..

Stunning reaction to pixel shift; first samples resolution reminded me of 8x10" color diapositives (!); DR is beyond expectations. A new trend in digital photography is starting; soon we may see some similar models from Nikon, Canon (?) and Sony too..

So does this mean that the next model with no rear screen, no rangefinder would cost over $9.000?

Shame! Shadow detail @ ISO 100 (and RAW!) from a camera costing $6.5K:

jazzblueAE: Cons: "USB charging makes it hard to keep a spare battery charged"

Am I the only one that doesn't understand this being listed in so many camera reviews as a con? Even if they HAD included a stand-alone charger (which would admittedly charge much faster), you still can't charge two batteries simultaneously, and is equally as inconvenient. If you choose to buy spare batteries, you should be buying spare chargers as well or it will always be "hard to keep a spare battery charged."

The only consideration I could see is if you are shooting with the camera, and a spare is charging at home, but then that's not very useful as a spare battery, is it?

Generic battery chargers for Sony A6000 series costs only $4.99; does not worth even to mention as con...

BobYIL: It's a reporter camera to be used mainly at high-ISOs, not for landscape or studio at the first rate... Past ISO-1600, the D5 have greater DR than any existing DSLR...

dpr's "Exposure Latitude" test is for base ISO's (ISO100).. Make it ISO800 with +1, +2, +3, +4EVs, etc., i.e. the range reporters using mostly then see how the D5 would shine with DR. (It's related with sensor optimization...)

Not so amazing after noting the D750 could still hold up with any of them up to ISO-51200..
