    Officially launched now, worlds first CMOS medium format sensor.

    50 MP
    Up to ISO 6400, unprecedented in digital MF
    14 stops of dynamic range
    Up to 12 minutes of exposure
    1.5 fps
    32.9 x 43.8mm sensor - 171% of FF, 62% of MF
    16 bit color depth

    Same price as the H5D-50 (i.e. super expensive).

    Huh? What do you mean? The H5D-50C sensor is 62% of 120 film. Their 60 MP
    sensor's are 53.7x40.2mm, which is still "only" 93% of MF.

    Leaf has a 53.7x40.4mm sensor, same as Phase One. But that's really the
    absolute top of the line, no one is making a full format MF sensor.

    The H5D-50 back from Hasselblad isn't considered a "joke" by any
    photographer... ever. :)

    It's kind of like the relation between APS-C and 35mm, only Hasselblad
    is doing about 1.3:1 instead of 1.6:1.
