    I'm glad you finally got it, Bob - I love mine for the same reasons you give!
    Plus battery life is outstanding.

    but since no company has left their customers standing in the rain so many times like phase/mamiya did i definitely would go for hasselblad.

The entire series of Hassy 500 and 200 series lenses, pentax, etc etc etc.
    It seems you're saying that Canon lenses can be used on the Phase One cameras, I'm considering the 645 AFD III, P40+ and that would be awesome because I have some really good Canon lenses... would it require and adapter? Thanks.
