I would be glad to know the name of this "Sinar Dealer" who told you such things.
It is of course absolutely wrong.
At first, we do not and never get such lenses in huge quantities: you can imagine that at this price there are not hundreds sold. No, we do get such lenses in bunches of 10 at the very maximum. Those lenses are then tested with OUR own specifications and released ONLY if they meet this specifications. If not, they are sent back.
If we would have VERY large numbers of these or any other lenses with defects, we would certainly not destroy them, but send them back to the manufacturer.
So I would really be glad to get the name of this dealer (as PM) to be able to give him right information as how it excatly works when it comes to lens quality and quality controls.
Thanks Shara and best regards,
The Sinar dealer I was speaking with told me that a VERY large number of the Sinar HR28 lenses were produced with severe defects and were destroyed by Sinar. This concerns me, can you elaborate and either confirm or dispell this issue.
PS. Thanks for the Private Email and BTW, I spoke with Mkravit by telephone, he was very helpful and really did not exhibit any political agenda as you suggested. I think that the images posted are very helpful and will go a long way in helping me make a decision.
What I think is political is the way people have attacked the him for posting these images. IMO it is quite obvious that there is an overwhelming bias toward Sinar. I am trying to determine which camera back to buy and most people have been helpful.
I want the truth about these backs and lenses. I don;t want sugar coated Madison Avenue hype. I can handle the truth and need it to make my decision. I know Danijela feels the same.
