    Digital medium format for under $10k with the new Mamiya DM22*|*Gear Diary

    It's not $40k, it's $10k. Wow. The price war is on!

    Heh! Hopefully this might start a trend of more affordable digital MF cameras! If they can get below the $5 mark I'll be very interested (medium format macro!)

    Hopefully you're being facetious. You can get a digital hasselblad with lens for about $12,000. There's also other cheaper options. Hell, the CFV-39 is 39MP digi back for $13,000.

    "Under $10k" doesn't mean affordable to a lot of people, myself included. I'm a poor college student and that means a half a year of tuition and living costs. When they get in the $1000 neighborhood, I'll be interested. I'd get one purely for landscape and macro work.

    At $3700, I can actually think about taking this for a test drive on my Mamiya RB67. :drool:

    Affordable in respect to other products in the same category... no student "needs" a digital hassy. The Porsche Boxster is the "affordable" Porsche but I doubt many will consider it as within their budget.

    The link redirects me to a digital back only... for $13k. Linking to a discontinued item doesn't count...
