"Its damn Sharp!" - Phase One
Absolutely! Medium format is the way to go for professional fashion photography.
A big second on the Phase One System.
You'll be playing in the big leagues.
Bought one of their "last year's model" (only 30 some MP) but I just love Hasselblad.
Any chance of seeing some shots from it, i bet they are stunning
The only Canon and Nikon rivals are the Canon 1DSmk3 and Nikon D3X half the price of Phase One and HD4
The H4D and the Mamiya DM33 are medium format and have massive amounts of pixels, they are fantastic for studio work and for creating huge prints the size of billboards.
Having good lightings, good models, plus make up, wardrobe and being a decent photographer is what is going to get you into a magazine not the camera you use.
Nikon and Canon don't produce MX cameras simply there is not a huge market for them and Nikon / Canon produce products for relatively smaller cost for the mass market. (Having said that P&S out sell DSLRs 3:1 last year)
So if you have $20,000 get the H4D or the Mamiya DM33, but its the aforementioned factors that will produce good photographs not your camera.
