What really kills me is that Edmund and Doug don't even own medium format backs. So what is the point of making such inane comments?
Your statements really add nothing, say nothing and are nothing.
Edmund, I ask you, what is your agenda? Are you anti Leaf? Are you so arrogant as a PhD that you feel you have the right to stick your head into discussions of which you have no knowledge or information.
Jeez, give me a break.
Obviously Leaf has some issues with the 65/75 sensors and I know they are working hard on it.
You really have to meet and know the people that make this equipment to realize how much effort they put into thier product and I'm including Leaf, Phase and Hasselblad.
Still, unless you work with this equipment day in and day out and work it hard you can't really find the issues and devise the workarounds and I can promise you, all digital cameras have some issues and all digital cameras eventually require some kind workaround.
This latest episode with the Leica M8 is a good example. NOT FOR ONE MINUTE do I think that Leica, or Michael or anyone attempted to deceive their customers or viewers. Yes some things were missed, some things omitted, but in the end it's almost impossible to test every subject in every light source with every lens.
Yes, Leaf has had some recent issues and needs to get on top of it, but they know this better than we do and I can promise you they will get to a solution as thier customer service and willingness to stand behind thier product is very good.
Nobody should wish any company go out of business, especially one that is hard working.
I've shot the Leaf, Phase and Hasselblad and can tell you all of them are very fine tools and each one has an advantage over the other, depending on the situation.
