"Don't be naive."
Hah, before you call me that go check the T1 times for your studio strobes, after that go and learn how a leaf shutter works; then reconcile the two at 1/1600. It can be done, but not at full power, just like I said.
As for tilt, the TS-E 17mm has 8º of tilt, that has crop factor to the Hasselblad of around 2. The Hasselblad HTS has 10º so 5º equivalent, the Canon has more effective tilt than the Hasselblad. Technical cameras can do extreme shifting, they also tend to have longer focal lengths so need more anyway, but few people need that and the OP showed no interest in it.
IQ, as I said, yes MF is better with the latest for sure, but first and second generation MF digital backs are not better than the D800E.
You have no common sense at all sir. A 35mm cam won't even sync period @ 1/1600th w/o losing massive amount of power. PERIOD! Done deal. To argue otherwise is to ignore that hundred of thousands of shoots have leveraged this advantage over 35mm.
A technical camera rig is a legitimate and important use of a MF system. Can't be ignored, Alex koloskov agreed and he owns a D800. It will not replace is hasselblad, but having the ability to use a system this way is a valid option 35mm can't offer.
If your considering a MF system, $$$$$ usually isn't an issue but all this above + IQ.
I know the limitations of my various systems, that is why I own 135 up to 6x9 format systems, you are the one that keeps making spurious claims that I feel obliged to swat. I know you are wrong most of the time, I am just trying to offer more accurate information for those less well experienced and impressionable.
So onto your three latest "points".
1/ I never said any different, I said you don't get full power sync at 1/1600, guess what? You don't, but for some reason you decided to tell me I was wrong. As for getting shots now, I am seeing more and more pros ganging improbable numbers of 600EX-RT's to achieve good illumination in daylight at up to 1/8000.
2/ A technical camera despite its uses, can very easily be ignored by the vast majority of MF shooters, and the OP didn't mention the speciality in the post. We could just as easily speculate on panoramic cameras with scanning lenses, which he also didn't ask about......
3/ The OP specifically stated taking out a loan to buy a camera, obviously if you had read that then it would have become apparent that "$$$$$$" absolutely are an issue.
Other than that I agree with everything you said
1. M00t because your missing the point again. 35MM can't sync up to that point. Thus a advantage for MF, and not for 35mm. You say" well, @ 1/1600th you don't get full power on a leaf shutter, while you forget that a FP shutter won't sync at all unless aided.
2. It relevent because it add another tool that 35mm doesn't do. Its very dumb to assume he'll never end up doing this. Panoramic cameras? lol what are you smoking? he's discussing MF cams.
3. If your considering a MF system you should be at the point where $$$$$ isn't an issue but all of the above is.
You read yet do not get understanding.
