Awesome to hear!

I managed to get my hands on a TLR Lubitel 2 and shot a roll of ILFORD hp4 through it and I love it! My wife isn't so keen but I love the film feel and look, something I haven't been able to replicate with digital.

Before my Phase One, I bought an old Hasselblad 500C. It was fun playing around with cross processed photos and the B&W does look better than my digital edits. Now that I have several lenses for my P1, I'm tempted to pick up a Mamiya 645 and some film and maybe even a polaroid back.

Now Hasselblad announced about a first medium format mirrorless that is in range of $8000-9000, isn't this almost an affordable digital medium format nowadays? i remember when i bought 1Ds2 or 1Ds3 they were nearly $8000

You can get a Pentax 645Z for $7000 new now, or even less used, probably down to $6000. It's over a year old now, but still has some hard-to-beat tech packed in. If you get lucky on used lenses, you have a tremendous value on hand. Even when I bought it new, I ended up with a camera and three lenses for a bit over $10k.

Those new Hass lenses are somewhat expensive, but for existing owners of HC lenses, they will all work via adapter. With the two native lenses you're looking at dropping $14k on the X1D before tax. Since it's a 'Blad, it's leaf shutter only, so it's not like the A7 series where you can adapt any lens you want. Not too sold on the value proposition, but time will tell.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

see to me anything over $500 is expensive and over $1000 is out of reach.

My lubitel cost me a whopping $25 and shoots in 6x6 framing i believe. I also recently bought a yashika MAT for a little over $60.
