Mamiya's ZD Finally Arrives

The Mamiya ZD DSLR is finally beginning to show up on dealers' shelves in Europe and Japan. The camera, which was announced two years ago, sports a full frame 22 megapixel sensor.

The medium format digital camera, which uses Mamiya's superb glass, has been eagerly awaited by many, who no doubt hope it was worth the wait.

However, after waiting two years, I wonder if digital technology hasn't already passed the camera by. It would be a shame to plunk down $12,000 for a ZD body, and nearly a grand for a lens, only to find that the camera is already a dinosaur.

There's no word from Mamiya if the ZD will be available in the US anytime soon.
