At less than half the weight of a conventional digital medium format camera, the mirrorless X1D is a game changer in the world of photography.

1) It is insanely expensive
2) there is no excuse for this camera. The dynamic range can easily be replaced with exposure stacking and really unless your an all natural light photojournalist, there is nothing you cant replace with a little forethought.
3) it is slow to autofocus thus rendering it questionable for journalistic candid photos
4) medium format cameras offer a very narrow depth of field. while some people like it and I do too,
as it makes the foreground subject really pop out of the image. making normal full frames photos look
like the magic in the form and contour of a face or a flower just isnt there in full frame. But it will make
photography very difficult without an external light source. at f8 you still feel like you are shooting an f3.5 on a full frame. there just isnt any depth and that means you will resort to alot of abstract tripod photography where shutter speed can be ignored to let in more light to achieve the desired depth. again this can work both ways, as a con or a pro. If your a food or still life studio photographer this could be a great tool.
5) the camera itself looks and feels like a mercedez. I'm sorry but it felt awkward to show this off to my poor photographer friends. i think we photographers dont need cameras that look like rolexes, they could easily be stolen if we take out in public. and who cares if it says "handmade in sweden". Dont say that, and take 2 grand off the price. a camera is a tool, a medium to transfer whats in your ambitions into something others can see, it is not memorabilia or something you should be afraid to take out cause its too fancy and pretty.
6) there arent enough options in the menu for a camera of this price. and being marketed as a minimalist piece of equipment does not excuse the camera for lacking in customization and setting options.
Overall, I will tell you about what this camera does do. It is an emotional experience on day 1 and day 2. You look at your photos and they look bigger than life, so much dynamic range and tonal range that you sit in awe in lightroom as you manipulate highlights, shadows, color, and contrast and realize this image is just mind blowingly awesome. you fall in love with the craft of editing and loving photos. but then you get into the real world and realize this is a fancy toy that is limiting what you can do for other people and thus the hope that you can financially support yourself with this camera becomes a distant dream more blurry each day, and made better only when you happily stare at your 50 megapixels of luxury and realize its just sitting there.
