My name is Paul and I'm a student interested in all kinds of photography. I live in Switzerland. I stumbled upon your website because of the wealth of medium format information here ... which is amazing to read!
I've been lurking around here for a long time ... and I am humbled by all the great photos shown around here!
I decided to finally post something because I'm in dire need of advice! I'm considering getting a new Hasselblad camera (I've been saving for ages) and saw that there are some amazing deals around specifically those pre-owned CPO cams. Here too, in Europe.
On the other hand I already got a P30 system and am annoyed a little by the crop factor.
So I have two options now: a) trade in for a h4d-50 which will cost me about 22k $ or get a pre-owned 39MP for about 12k $ and still sell my p30. I guess there's a 15k $ difference in money here. I could use some of it to get a few lenses. On the other hand I would like to own new gear that is cutting edge.
So, from functional point of view ... do you think it is worth it going for the h3d-50?
Is this a huge difference between these two systems (excepting the h4d body improvements such as true focus) ?
Phase one is even more crazy, it have to lay down about 24k for a p45+ set.
To me something seems terribly chaotic about the price landscape in MF world ...
Regards and thanks for your thoughts!
