I too saw the Gilde at Photokina. A very impressive piece of technology, well thought out, HUGE and nicely built (even tough not as perfect as the Alpa's).
Nevertheless I ask myself about the useability of the smaller film formats like 6x6. Why do that if I can get larger images on the film and crop later? Don't get me wrong, it's a nice feature but in my eyes makes the camera unnecessary more complicated. I can't see myself composing handheld with that thing anyway.
Tilt and shift is really appealing, 10 degrees tilt are enough, but the turning point looks a little strange, won't I loose the focus by turning the lens at it's backplate? There is a reason for the Sinar and Arca (and Hartblei and Canon and...) mechanisms that do it differently.
And I have my doubts about the precision (and therefore usefulness) of sliding adapters for digital in general and especially for short focal lengths.
My conclusion: interesting, but I can't get rid of the feeling that Mr. Gilde tried to pack too much into one single camera and the compromises don't outweigh the advantages (for me).
What do you think about it?
