I'm at that point where I'm starting to think about upgrading to MF digital (although probably only a year or two from now, but it doesn't hurt to be informed). Currently I'm shooting Canon system, with a 5DIII, and Hasselblad V with several Zeiss glass.
I am a still life photographer, mainly shooting food and products in the studio, with the occasional model added to the mix.
Now, I'm not really sure which MF digital I should get, but it seems that Leica S2 is a bit too expensive (body alone costs over $30k and lenses are about $10k each here in Israel), and lacks any tilt shift options. Pentax isn't even available here, which leaves me with either Mamiya/Leaf or Hasselblad, which are most common here. I never shot with the Mamiya, but I did rent a Hasselblad H3DII-39 several times, and it was just a pleasure to shoot with, and I liked Phocus a lot.
What I'm really looking for is tilt shift options, and hopefully a waist level finder, which from what I can see, only Hasselblad gives me.
I'm aiming to buy used, and hopefully later on upgrade to a better model if need be, but this has to at least last me 2-3 years.
I shoot mostly tethered, and 90% of the time I use manual focus, so something like true focus isn't a deal breaker to me, although it would be nice to have. I aim for about 40ish MPs. Knowing that, does the newer models offer noticeable improvement in image quality? I'm looking to either buy the H3DII 39 or the H4D 40, is it worth the extra cash for the H4D?
How well does the new Fuji glass stack to the older Zeiss glass? for the time being, I'm looking at buying the CF adapter, and use my Zeiss glass with it. How well will it sync with the body and back? Any known bugs (I've tried the CFV with my current camera, and it was hell trying to make it all work)? and most importantly, can I use the Zeiss glass with the HTS 1.5 tilt shift adapter?
Other recommendations are welcome as well, since I don't really know much about MFD.
And, most importantly, anyone know which sites I can stalk for good deals (bearing in mind I live in Israel), other than eBay and Capture Integration?
