What do you do with a MFDSLR?

What do you do with an 80 megapixel medium format digital SLR?  Take a picture of your 4 year old in the back yard of course :)

More seriously, I've been loving using my technical camera with the Phase One IQ180 back for my landscape work that I wanted to be able to re-use the back (the expensive part) with a camera with at least rudimentary auto focus and SLR framing (the relatively inexpensive part) for things like wildlife photography.  Seeing an opportunity to pick up a clean used Phase One 645DF+ for a reasonable price, I jumped on it a couple of weeks ago.  This was my test image.

And that is a crop to view actual pixels pretty much straight out of Capture One Pro.  The auto focus on the 645DF+ certainly leaves much to be desired but when it hits, the results are gorgeous.
