The Hy6 and the 6008 are night and day. THe 6008 does not have the ability to take any other back other than Sinar backs or the P20 package. The lenses are second to none.
I spent some time at Photoshow looking around and playing. Hasselblads booth was a bit of an shame. They use to have one of the biggest booths at Photoshow next to Canon and Epson. This time they had one little glass counter all the way in the back with not much to show.
The thing about Hasselblad is that they could very easily have closed the H3 without many problems and kept the V series alive without the needs for syncing cables. What blew me away on the V series with their digi back was that any manufacturer would have jumped to make a back for them. The trigger that detects if the darkslide is in on all V bodies ever made is what triggers the digital V back. This would be very simple for all makers to adapt if Hassy hadn't jumped at the H1 so hard. The only body with a problem would have been the 553/555 series of backs and this would only effect the Leaf/Imacon backs due to their battery. The Phase and Sinar backs would have fit with out a problem (I believe) i don't know sinar. So Hasselblad could have very easily made it happen and kept everyone happy. I know I would have switched from my RZ to Hassy V if it would have been cable free. Instead I went to the H1. Which I am sure was their plan to keep you in Hasselblad and sell new stuff. They could be selling the V, H2 and the H3 closed.
But they could have stayed a very viable company with two systems the V and the H and given people the ability to use the 38 Biogon and other amazing V products as well as the H depending on what you worked in. The PM45 was a great prism and I hope the Hy6 adapts one. The Ikon could have been a great competition to the Leica M8. I don't think it would have gotten them more customers, but it would have allowed all Hassy V people to stay in their cameras and move up slowly. The rental market would have stayed V for a lot of people. I still know some Asian and European shooters that prefer the V mount hassy with cables and all.
For now I am sticking with my P25 & A75 digi backs on my H1's and Power PC Macs. I guess in about a year from now I will be looking into the Hy6 and Intel Macs. But for now as RJ said, It works almost bullet proof and it's fast. I don't need to spend more time learning knew stuff, tweaking new software and reauthorizing accross four machines.
I need to be printing more books, producing more estimates, and shooting more for myself just a small tripod, a camera and body wondering around the city.
I though about getting an Intel machine just as a shoot to process station. But what I have works well and flies. You sometimes get caught up in all this crap.
Best of luck to all of you with your choices. Anyone in the market for new equipment I would go with the least expensive MF system i.e. a used AFD II with a digi back on what ever mount. Make sure that when you buy that mount you have 12 months to change mounts. Then look at the Hy6 when it is a working machine.
