Hasselblad X1D-50c Medium Format Mirrorless Pre-Order :
I knew Hasselblad was coming out with a mirrorless camera but I am surprised by the price. Normally, I get the next M whenever it comes out, and I’ve been waiting for the M11 but the price of the X1D-50C isn’t as insane as I thought it would be. The price is actually close to the Leica SL and M systems. Plus, the lenses are actually cheaper than a lot of the Leica lenses. The Hasselblad X1D-50c might just replace my Leica M 240…I am extremely tempted. It’s a 50mp medium format sensor….nuff said. Plus, it’s got a lot of cool features like an EVF and 14 stop dynamic range. I guess I will wait a bit and see. On a side note, I’ve been tempted by the SL but unlike the SL, the Hasselblad actually has lenses that I want not just two zooms. Yes, I know you can use the M lenses on it but it would be nice to have some lenses that are designed exclusively for the system.
