Hello all

I am new to this forum and seeking reviews on the Hassleblad H2D-39. Have seen a few articles, but nothing on lenses for this model.

Well, once you've ponied up THIRTY EIGHT THOUSAND dollars, and bought the THREE THOUSAND dollar H2 camera body it attaches too, you'll need to stock up on the budget line of H2 lenses for THREE to EIGHT THOUSAND apiece.

A few more grand and you can get a laptop with a huge hard drive and firewire port to strap to yourself and tether the camera too. After all, the 78mb files need someplace to go!

A real bargain compared to scanning slides, phew! I think I'll save a few bucks and just buy a new 5-series BMW.

Well the 8000x5000 (estimated) pixels vs. the piddly 6mp images of yester...day at 3000x2000 are still a really sad excuse for a photograph, I mean, just look at the gigapixel project. 88,000 x 44,000 should by the standard P&S pocket camera resolution by now, that darn monster is FIVE YEARS OLD!

PS: Yes 39mp is really only 2.5 times more detailed than 6mp.

It is the digital APO correction that draws me towards it. The large sensor is also a desired feature, measuring nearly twice the physical size of a 35mm sized sensor.

It may be rather expensive upon its launch, but the price may drop within a short time I think. I doubt I'll see it on Ebay.

i would not expect a significant drop anytime in the near future..

you could save quite a bit of money going down to the 22-25mp backs and still have enough resolution to do billboards!!

Or continue to shoot medium format film and use a top of the line scanner which would give you an ungodly amount of MP.
