    Taking the cost out of the equation, is there a widely accepted 'best'
    digital camera, ie, the one everybody wants to own? I imagine it would be a

    Unfortunately for me, money is an object, so I stick with my Fuji S602Z!

    No doubt in my mind whatsoever! Canon EOS 1DS. I'll have one in my hot
    little bag in a few days.

    How about the Hubble Telescope? The maintenance would be quite costly

    A spy satellite (like the Hubble but pointed towards Earth) could be
    more interesting.

    Woner what focal length we're talking about? Thousands of mm?

  7. Yes. The Fuji GX645AF (sold as the Hasselblad H1 in your neighborhood) with
    the Fuji 20MP full-frame digital back.
    Yes a bit cheaper. With a film back, the GX645AF is a US$7,000 camera, and
    that digital back will be over US$15,000. Of course, you can always use that
    back on your Fuji GX680, but then you get a crop factor.

  8. Have you ever held a 1Ds? It is significantly heavier and a lot more awkward
    than any MF camera I have ever owned: Hasselblad (many many years ago),
    Mamiya 645 Pro (current), Rolleiflex TLR being the three heaviest. The
    Hasselblad H1 has worlds better ergonomics, although it is heavier than the
    I think you're right on this. I'll be happy with 10D noise levels at ISO 800
    and 1600, but a full-frame camera should have lower noise than the 10D.
    I'm saving frantically...

    Not in the weightlessness of space; just give me lots of handholds.
