Hmm, you can't have it both ways. In another post you say:
which pretty much agrees with my previous statement.
I don't doubt the HTS is very well made, but IMHO it's still a compromise compared to a technical camera, not only in terms of optical quality but also flexibility (greater range and combination of movements on a tech camera).
Ok, so how many of you here have actually worked
for any significant time with the HTS? Raise your hands.
As one who shoots both interior and exterior architecture for a living and has for over 30 years, I have no problem shooting with the HTS. Yeah, Hasselblad could use a new wider lens or two than the 28 down the road, but for now, in fact (gasp!), I quite like the HTS, and it's another incredibly useful tool for shooting architecture. After shooting for most of those 30+ years with the likes of a Fuji GX617 system, Linhof Super Technika V, Linhof Kardan B, Sinar p2 & Arca-Swiss F-Metric, and an ever-changing variety of Goerz, Schneider, Rodenstock, Nikkor & Fujinon lenses, I have found shooting with the Hasselblad system hardly a devolution from my days shooting with a view camera, nor has it been a limiting factor in terms of versatility, creativity or quality - just the opposite actually. It's been liberating. I'm looking forward to adding a 50MS next month. Huh, go figure.
