I'm with you on this,Sami.
After just a few days posting here the trend does seem to be moving to more confrontation,
often without cause.
People with no,or next to no contact,with certain products who come in swinging at reps
will do nothing but drive away input from the company side. We may not neccessarily like
the answers but we should be counting ourselves fortunate that there is ANY presence on
a public forum from a manufacturer. Interaction between corporate interests and pro
photogs was exactly what made the RG medium format forum so valuable and if the
trend continues here then I suspect we'll lose that potential before it really gets off
I'm closing in on my DB decision and Leaf is at the front of the pack specifically because
of the excellent service I, who doesn't even own one of their products, has received.
Yair,from Leaf UK shot specific images to address some of my concerns and sent me
the RAWs on DVD in Montreal.
Similarly,Vistek (the Canadian Phase rep) has also gone beyond the normal 'protocol' for
making backs and files available to me to better evaluate their product.
