Ah! Battle Swords drawn!
The HC120II, HC50II were introduced last year. The HTS and 35-90 are also fairly recent additions.
The reason why we have not introduced more lenses is that we already have a complete range of Autofocus and Central Shutter lenses.
Does the CF lens adapter have full aperture / stop down control?
Saying that Phase One has been two years ahead in terms of digital back technology depends in what you are looking for in a digital back. Outright Megapixels? Sure, I will conceed that. But if it is anything else with regards to a system, there are many more advantages to Hasselblad.
Yes - Flame On!
Does the CF Lens Adapter have full aperture/stop down control? Why David, that sounds like a negative leading question from a competitor and eerily familiar to someone you and I have both talked about!
(inside joke between David and I)
No, the Phase One/Mamiya CF/FE
Lens Adapter does not have full aperture stop down. So, one penalty point, but one gold star for being compatible with FE lenses (since the Hasselblad CF Lens Adapter is not).
Are the 50mm and 120mm new designs? Or updates of the existing lenses? Should they really count? The HTS does have optics inside it, so I suppose you could count that, but seems like a stretch. The reason I note the recent additions is that while yes, Hasselblad has a full lineup, Phase One/Mamiya has been more productive in the past several years in terms of new Leaf Shutter lenses and indeed, new lenses overall. If you count focal plane shutter lenses then the recent lens additions are:
*55/2.8 Leaf Shutter
*80/2.8 Leaf Shutter
*110/2.8 Leaf Shutter
*150/3.5 Leaf Shutter
*120/5.6 Tilt Shift Focal Plane
*35mm/3.5 Focal Plane
*120mm/4 Macro AF Focal Plane
I stand by my statement regarding Phase One digital back innovational advantages.
*Ultra Long Exposure
*Variable Capture Rate
*Ultra High Retina-Type Display
*Higher Megapixel Count
*Multiple Interfaces, including firewire and USB
*UDMA 6 compatible media ready
Hasselblad has either never matched these capabilities with their digital backs or at best, been years behind. Other than, yes, that Hasselblad digital backs can accept information from their own camera system, which adds some functionality and corrects deficiencies, please tell me what innovational advantages Hasselblad digital backs have over Phase One digital backs (from a current or historical perspective). I would also point out that the above unique Phase One innovations are available to any user on many different camera platforms, including view and technical cameras, and yes, Hasselblad H cameras (H1/H2). This is not a bash of closed/open. I've never really cared for nor joined that argument. Simply pointing out that the Phase One digital back innovations are not restricted only to Hasselbald H users, which I feel is relevant.
