For shooters who dabble a little or a lot in commercial work..... this could be a great step.

Body + 35 f2.8 (equivalent) + 95 f4 (equivalent) is $10,700 USD

I guess there's a wedding photog out there who could find some sort of ROI in this?

There are all kinds of business models out there....

For the majority of shooters.... way over-kill for sure.

I know several wedding shooters that do shoot commercial. This could be a good fit.

I will buy this, but I will wait and see if this gets some of those crazy Fuji deals they do I'm all in on the mirrorless Fuji cameras. I switched 4 years ago and LOVE IT!!! Uf I could get this for $1k less or more I will pull the trigger.

Where do the deals showup?

I would prefer Hassel X1D for 1/2000s leaf shutter. Fuji's 1/125 sync speed is too slow.

Wow, with that slow of a sync speed, it really makes you wonder who this thing is for. I mean, someone shooting headshots with continuous lights in a studio, I suppose. At that point though, with studio conditions, no real difference between this and the 5Dsr. :/

Just curious why 1/125th is too slow compared to 1/200th of your regular dSLR. Holding ambient at 1/125th shouldn't be too difficult.

1/125 is a full stop slower than 1/250 that I am used to and 4 stops from the 1/2000 leaf shutter that was mentioned above. Thinking about strobe work especially, that means you're losing a stop of flash power. It means HSS if you want to stop more ambient, or ND filters. It isn't a deal breaker for everyone, but it does muddy the waters about who this is for. Clearly not targeted at strobists.

I don't understand the allure of smaller than full-frame medium format to begin with. Not to mention the slow x-sync, that's super lame.

1/125th is pretty normal for a mini MF sensor. HSS will work with the TTL flash and Fuji might release some leaf shutter lenses in the future.

I like the idea of the Haselblad too but it takes up to 7 seconds to boot up and it's still mostly vapour ware.

I'm interested in shooting more medium format at weddings. Something different to shoot with. I'm taking one along to todays wedding to see how it goes as a third body.

Be sure to report back, I'm curious how it will be in the field.

Don't get me wrong, I think it is sexy as hell and is really interesting from a tech standpoint. I am skeptical how much, if anything, you gain over a high MP DSLR, though. The DR/IQ from the D8x0/5Dsr/A7RII are already so good and the lens lineups are very mature.

Curious about this as well. I was editing my 2nds photos this week and he shoots with a D800. I could literally make out detail on the blackheads of someones face with that thing. Incredible. As for gear goes, I feel like we're pretty squared away these days with any number of cameras.

If and I don't know that it does, it captures in true 16 bit then you can say good by to banding in skies and other graduated colors. Does that make it worth the price, the size and weight?

Remember that Fuji will be releasing an adapter for the Hasselblad H mount. So you'll be able to have leaf shutter lenses with higher sync speed. But you'll lose autofocus.
