Hello all, again,
I've posted this official statement in order to fulfil a request made by the *public* ever since the initial reports about the centerfold came out.
Such public statements are not a regular event in our industry and I think we will all agree that my agenda here is clear and well stated.
In all fairness, I did not intend to let it develop into a grilling party, although some members of this board, guided by other agendas, would probably love to see this happening.
If I pass any judgement over image quality, this is based on several years of pixel digging, literally and I will do it both internally in Leaf and externally with the competition.
Still this is not supposed to become personal and if anyone is being personally offended, then I apologize all heartedly.
I say we follow Ivan's suggestion and let this topic rest. Anyone who's still after clarifications or additional info, can contact me directly or our support team.

hi yair again,
without having any wish to eat you ( also for suggestion problems for human meat since several months),- and without wanting to be unfair to you..... but as stephan said before,- maybe in parts its a language problem,- but aside this it could be also that you or your company provocate a little bit to be attacked, simply for the way how you speak or how you use words which- at least - i interpretated as personal attacks.
so again in this post you apologize that , but immediately you start yout next offense, if you write about some people who are guided by other agendas. you speak about me? if not everythings fine,- if so, i want to tell you that i am not guided by any company.....,- although my good connect to sinar after the last year of shooting is obvious,- 1. because they took over images from me for their advertisement purposes and 2. because they have been opened enough to take over stephans and my investments in a working software solution for the dalsa sensor, which is built in the e75..... i like that and i have my benefit from that,- but i am far away to atttack you or your company because you are a leaf rep, and i am far away to let me "guide" by some company.
i apologize if i took your first comment to my photokina shots a little bit too personal.... but i took it with some humor, didnt i? , so was my answer( i still dont see the casts you are seeing ).
i spent a huge amount of my time cooperating with stephan on the solution of exactly the problems you are naming and having, instead of trying to get one replacement sensor after the other.- LEAF was allways in my eyes for going in your system also, before i finally went with SINAR....
so sorry me that i read carefull if you found now a solution for the cf issue or not..... i just got disappointed, thinking i interpretated your statement very well, maybe for knowing something about the flaws you are fighting with and where it seems you are now herein,- but than you tell in the same post that your "competitors" were still behind leaf..... i think thats simply not good style, or at least i dont like it that much.
also its not so far to think that you speak about sinar here.
the problems with the kodak sensors are reallly very different to the dalsas,- and also there are several plus points for phase, so it doesnot sound that logic just to say they are behind...
no idea about the imacons. i didnt liked their marketing of their scanners too much cause they name then "drumscanners" and they are not ( so i prefered my real drumscannner over their products )..... thats all i know about that brand.
so i will shut up now here as you were recommending....
have a nice day,- dont take it personal, it is not.
