When it is actually the hardware that is the problem. Hasselblad has also stated they are deveoping an ultrafast* prime for the X1D.

* with an aperture of f/2-f/1.7 which I suppose qualifies for medium format, though I will point out there was an 85mm f/1.8 [ there was also a 100mm f/2 variant] lens for full format 645 in 1924 with the Ermanox....and CDAF is known to get even more sluggish with fast lenses due to the losses in contrast that come with wider apertures.

the problem
As with most new products,theres teething probs,However its still producing reasonable images @ a price which wont be greatly popular.

U$5000 camera U$ 4000 for the name....thats reasonably cheap to some.

Personally i rate it as a good looker, but in 2018 the Fuji with the side viewfinder is supposed to arrive(dont know exactly when).It may be more appealing?
