im really dissapointed.
its about time they replaced the crappy plastic std lens (now just the 45 and 55 to go).
but its just an afd2 with a few tweaks. it does trigger the leaf shutter of the v series lenses, so the adaptor isnt new news at all.

the afd2 didnt come close (imho) to the build quaility of either the h1/2 or hy6/afi, and the phase hasnt really improved on it.

All I'd want is less shutter lag, faster AF and a fast eg. F2 lens - the rest of the Mamiya is actually fairly ok, the finder is good enough for MF, nothing drives me crazy and apart from some recurring metering errors there are few surprises when using it.

When I got the thing I was doubtful, but after seeing batteries last a month at a time, focus better than a Canon, and a seriously sharp standard lens, I am starting to wonder whether the advantages of the Hassy aren't just perceived rather than real.

I agree faster AF and sharper lenses would make it pretty much perfect for me

I'm not complaining until I see the price.

I think it should be 4-5 grand with the lens tops.

I think the service plan on the camera is a plus.  3 years or 300,000 shutter actuations.
I just don't want to have to go through my dealer to get the camera serviced.  I want to be able to go on the website and set up a service ticket to send it in myself.

Maybe Phase will slap a decent BIG screen on their backs, and liveview ? That's an improvement to our photo lives !

although im dissapointed...  
 i am impressed by the extra focus points, i wonder how far apart they are?

and the grip seems to have been improved - looking at the top shots.

I hope it is faster motor as well.  I don't need focus points that are just as slow as the focus now.

Does AF work with Hasselblad Lenses.  Also I don't understand whcih other lenses work with this camera.

There is focus confirmation with all manual lenses.  You have to focus wide open, then stop down... like what I do with Leica/Zeiss lenses on Canon.

Pentacon Six lenses = Hartblei?

So, a tilt shift, a fish eye, a 45mm wide angle, 3 shift lenses, a normal 80mm f/2.8 lens, and a 600mm f/8 mirror lens?

Looks like the AFD III is going to be somewhere around 4,169 dollars.  And around 1,000 for the 80mm and the new 45-90 around 5,000 dollars.  Of course this is yen converted to US.

And the 150mm 2.8 around 2500.00 us

If you wade thru all the links in the Phase One documentation, you find details on the new Mamiya 150mm f/2.8 lens and the new 45-90 lens.

The bad thing is that it is not a camera made from scratch

The good thing is also precisely that. It is the opposite of vaporware. A somewhat improved AFD, that is already being marketed by Phase One and Mamiya and is ready for market as we speak.

It is leaf lens ready, so glass is probably going to be made from scratch.

The no show of "European lens maker" is disappointing, unless I missed something...

I think that this is a conservative incremental move for a long term relationship Mamiya Phase One, (the trickle down for existing owners is may be, for example, Mamiya specific lens correction on the next Capture One 4 PRO program).

I hope that the two companies make good use of the momentum that this new camera brings.

By the way, can we truly call this  "a new system" can we? probably, a new re branded improved model would be more accurate.

I agree.  I would've preferred a 645 version of the RZ67, with rotating back, instead of the 35mm style of the 645AF series, but oh well.

Why does Phase One call this a "revolutionary camera system"... lol.
