Reality check. Take a look at Tim Parkins' Big Camera Comparison. Take a look at the video of a comparison of a Nikon D800 vs Hasselblad H4D-40. They didn't test against film for color acuracy, did they? You know from the comparison that the D800 isn't color accurate, and color is important to you. I'd be asking, "Is this better than Portra?" Personally, I can't see spending $3300 on something that doesn't give me accurate results. Why bother? Look at how the MF camera holds up against an 80Mp back. And you want something less than that? Hello?

Grab your yardstick, and see what measures up for yourself.
