i have finally decided on buying a MFDB and it will be Phase1. Not sure which one, but I will be doing several test over the next couple of weeks to find out, which one will suit my needs. Since my budget is limited, I might want to go for the Hasselblad V System. So there are a few questions:
1.) will P1 drop its prices, after Hasselblad has really gone down seriously?
Here in Europe the current prices for refurbs are: P25 / P30 - EUR 9000, P45 - EUR 11000.-
and the new backs: P25+/P30+ EUR 12000.-, P45+ EUR 26000.-
According to my local Phasedealer they are trying to get rid of all refurbs and sell the +backs only from next year on. The current Hasselblad offer is a H3D-31 with lens for EUR 11000.-
2.) what back you use on a Hasselbald V? P25 (larger chip, less crop, lower resolution) or the P30 (smaller chip, larger crop, higher resoltion). I mainly shoot portraits and corporate stuff.
3.) is the "+" worth the extra money?
4.) and while I am at it: Is the quality of CF-E lenses significantly better than the one of CF lenses?
will appreciate any reallife advice.
thanks for help
ps: i do have a Mk3 with all the L-Glass, which I like, but I often find it too happy-snappy. I am looking for a camera to slow me down and concentrate. Thats why I am opting for the V.www.dashuber.com
