My Switch to Medium Format

With Nikon’s D800 at a whopping 36 megapixels, why on earth did I opt for a medium format digital camera? I’ve been a Nikon shooter for years and have a bunch of professional Nikon glass and speedlites so adding a D800 to the mix seems a no brainer – or is it? There are many reasons. Bigger chip, bigger sensor. More real estate and bigger pixels. Insanely shallow depth of field. Full 16-bit color depth. Insane dynamic range and detail. To name a few. Oh, and I’m not abandoning 35mm – I’m holding steady to my D3s for everything else I won’t shoot on the Hassy.
