    Mamiya first announced their 22 megapixel ZD medium format digital-SLR more than a year ago and it’s finally going to ship, a bit late, but hey this one is worth the wait.

But this is for pros, son, and features a 14-bit A/D converter recording 12-bit images at 1.5fps, CF and SD storage, 1.8-inch LCD and FireWire support.
