Hassy has launched a totally different camera system recently with CMOS sensor. Sony makes the sensor for the new H5D-50c camera.

What do you think? I know ISO speed will be much higher (ISO range of 100-6400) but it is a real breakthrough?

The new camera will gain capability to shott in low light but it may loose the beautiful color tones of the original MF digital sensors.

Interesting but at the price point Hassy is likely to ask for it it will have a very limited market. I would be much more interested is a reasonably priced digital back for my V system Hassy cameras. But they do not seem interested in anything under $20K in price. Frankly, the forthcominug Pentax MF camera with a 50 MP cmos sensor seems to be a better bet for us more ordinary mortals.

I agree its more affordable to go with the Pentax, the only real reason to go Hassy or Phase is the bigger CMOS sensor (16bit), lens choices and leaf shutter for Higher sync speed. But if you can live with the 1/125 sync speed and wait for upcoming pentax lenses than Pentax is the way to go.

50 megapixels and $20K for mere mortals? I need at least 75

The entire high-end commercial photography market, in fact.

I heard that Sony makes these sensors... Any confirmation on this?

I agree. Very small market. Good luck selling them.

Here's a good deal that just came out on a Hassie H5D.

Maybe they're trying to be more affordable with the new releases. That 16 bit dynamic range makes a big difference in the quality of the images.

Yes, I agree, if it is a real 16 bit range difference as they claim. I have heard this kind of claims before but there were not too much evidence when you see the resulting image.

Also, it is still a CMOS sensor lacking the color tones produced by the conventional MF sensors. People love those vibrant colors and deep tones. I guess images will look like Canon or Nikon images regarding color tones.

Yes, you can still shoot CCD technology in the studio but now you can shoot sunsets without CCD blooming which is incredibly unforgiving for a $35k camera.

Does it beat out a d800e price vs performance?
No it does not.

The d800e is still the king of the best buy in town. Or the A7R for the rangefinder crowd.

Yep. D800 until the new 5d Mark IV comes out.

Your A7R has a rangefinder??? Lucky. Mine just has an EVF.
