I've been obsessed with resolution ever since first handling a Hasselblad 500C in the film days. I'm in love with what Fujifilm and Hasselblad have been doing with the medium format GFX and X systems, respectively, not to mention what Sony, Sigma, Leica and Canon have been able to achieve with 35mm sensors.
