Secondhand market: Fuji GFX 50R vs Phase One vs Hasselblad

  1. I don't have a huge sample size but I have noticed that on the secondhand market, a GFX 50R is going for about the same price as the modular DSLR cameras with equivalent performance. E.g. Hasselblad H4D-40; P45+ based bodies. It's also cheaper than a 645Z.

    Maybe I'm the crazy one but I'm not sure why I would buy an H4D-40 over a GFX 50R. There will be exceptions for some, of course, but I just don't get it. The 50R is faster, somewhat cheaper, and performs at least as well as anything at or below the 50Mpx level.

    I'm not saying I would knock back a recent model Phase One such as the XF. They're beautiful cameras with excellent features. But would I buy one? No.

    Let me know your thoughts.
  2. I assume everything depends on the use case?
    But yes, I am feeling too old to get a MF DSLR for hobby purposes.
  3. You should do whatever you want.
