how are phase one back's screens? i have had they are quite poor even less than a DSLR.
i have a canon 1d mark2 camera now which i am happy with it. are the P1 screens above or below this mark.
The best option is to visit a dealer and have a look at one.
I heard many complaints about the quality of the Phase screen before I had actually seen one and was expecting something much more useless than what I found when I went to a dealer.
So it ended up being better than expected for me.... that is not to say that it is a good screen... far from it, and No it will not be as good as your Canon.
But you may end up finding it is good enough for your needs.
Aparently the new Plus versions of the Phase back have better screens but I don't know anyone that has actually seen one in operation.
