Hasselblad X1D-50C: Delayed Again

See my Hasselblad X1D-50C wish list at B&H Photo.

If you order the X1D, please use my link so I get credit. B&H is loaning me the X1D, and so readers ordering through my links are important.

Delayed 2+ months back in September, the Hasselblad X1D is now delayed again (verified through my contacts at B&H Photo as of today). I’m actually glad for this, since I have too many other items to deal with right now (Nikon 19mm, Nikon 70-200, Zeiss Milvus 18mm f/2.8).

Who the heck does Hasselblad they think they are, Leica? “Hassleblad” for those who have pre-ordered. But better to work the bugs out and do it right than ship prematurely as Leica does.

Fujifilm has wisely not promised anything more than a vague availability date for the Fujifilm GFX. But the way things are going, maybe Fujifilm will beat Hasselblad to market.

This whole “announce and ship someday” stuff is an ill-advised practice, and it shows poor planning and unrealistic leadership. Working in the software industry as an engineer for 25 years, I saw it all the time—so obvious and yet the people in charge are generally clueless, wishing for milk and honey to spout from rocks, so to speak.
