    One of the things I've been trying to research is the lenses that make the most of the 645z. Basically everyone praises the camera across the board, but then when they start talking about lenses things take a bit of a turn. Coming from DSLRs, I'm used to seeing primes in the 1.2-1.4 range, and some (like the Otus line) are redefining our expectations for sharpness and aberrations when used wide open. Any opinions on what lenses really make the cut and do justice to the camera?

    Yeh I have sensed a strong polarisation in cameras this last year. Full frame DSLRs seem to be a complete dead end. Massive growth in medium format with Hasselblad and rumours of Sony and Fuji re-entering the game. Professionals are now able to afford medium format and are doing so. Protogs needing reach, sport and nature, seem to be moving to APS with the D500 outselling everything else Nikon makes. Noticed some of the big city camera stores didnt even display Fx Nikon, their displays were mostly Olympus Fuji Panasonic Sony and very surprisingly Leica; the DSLRs were dumped in a corner at the back. Think this is where the excitement will be now MFT/APS and MF. To put in perspective the Hasselblad X1D is smaller than a D500; who the hell wants a dinosaur like the D5 😉
