    Using an IQ4? What's your system?

    Refurb does not mean kaputt. There are certainly some out there who are sending their Macs back for non product related reasons. They may even just found out after purchase they cannot afford them ...

    Formal bag for MF gear

    I would probably use a formal briefcase (with strap), where you can add the camera body and the the lenses separately. When shooting, the camera will be out with one lens, so you don’t really have to put it back into the bag all the time with attached lens. I reckon the Billingham Hadley...

    Hasselblad HC lens auto focus performance with X1D body

    I am using a HC100 with the X1D2 - AF is fine within the normal limits of this system. I even prefer the mechanic feel of the lens to the XCD ones.
