Hasselblad vs Nikon D800E

The Hasselblad X1D vs Nikon D800E – If we look at both the camera it is very clear that Hasselblad X1D camera is not bigger than Nikon D800E, but at the same time if you look at the sensor size and dramatically larger lens-mount ring of X1D you can imagine the amount of effort Hasselblad team added to this project to make the system size portable, light weight and compact.
