Regarding the "simulations"- I notice the Hasselblad user neglected to include the "v" notched rebate. How are we to know it wasn't some cheapo Japanese knockoff like a Bronica?

My greatest digital hits would be my original 1Ds or my D3. The 1Ds was a quirky brick from hell, with a never-to-be-repeated control layout and a charger of pure evil, but it was amazingly responsive, and the files it produced were the first time I'd looked at a digital that I owned and thought "wow!" The D3 was like a luxury car, robust-feeling and perfectly balanced. Not as charming as the 1Ds, but a distinct step up from my current D800 as a shooting experience. In fact my D800 is rather disappointing in every aspect other than file quality- it's adequately responsive, the focusing speed is okay, the ergonomics are mediocre. I suppose I spoiled myself by using top-notch DSLRs before it. If I write this again in a few months time, the X100s might take the top spot. It's a lot of fun.
