    Probably wouldn't be very good for sports.

    With 1.2 seconds between shots (read the specs on the page you linked to), the guys who are shooting 5+ FPS are going to be getting a lot more action shots.

    It's best suited for working in a studio.

    Why would someone pay 30,000 for a camera lol. I thought the 1d IV was expensive.

    If you dont know, then you obviously dont need one.

    Huge MP count and low noise are the main benefits. Often used for fashion/product photography when wall sized prints are going to be made.

    Did you notice the size of the sensor?

    Full frame (35mm) = 24x36mm

    The sensor on that Hassy is 33.1x44.2mm ... 31 MP
    And even then, it's not 'full frame' for it's format.

    It is high quality, medium format, classic, and ideal for photo studio shooting of products, magazine covers, or portraits. In a competitive market, where you are making good money, this kind of camera will give you an edge, so it may be worth the price in the long run. Cost is relative.
