You should know me well enough for not and never letting things be said which are purposely said in a wrong way or with the wrong words.
I do not deny you the right to speak about other solutions or other ways to do, or other possibilities: this is absolutely approriate and right on this forum. But I shall deny and react each time when wrong things are claimed or when words are purposely misused to denigrate a product:
- "barely focusable"
- "more accuracy"
- "without having to take/send the camera to go through surgery"
- "and an expensive one that is"
- "the p2 doesn't offer the same level of rigidness"
- "they all choose to leave the P2 behind"
- "Many (most?) of these backs use ..." It really doesn't need the comment "(most?)"
Well, what should I say about your above comments? That they are right? That they are accurate and telling the truth? Certainly not.
Be right and neutral, and choose your words in an adequate way to avoid to mislead, that's all what I am asking for.
No, by "camp" I don't mean that, but I mean and speak about yourself. English is not my mother language, but I am fit enough to know what I am writing and you probably as well: why do you need to change the meaning and suggest different things? It is quite obvious that each time you can say something against Sinar you do it, not only with myself: should I post the links as well to remind you about all of it?
Well, I am neither in a special camp, but the one of the photography which I love, and I don't think you have found me speaking in a wrong way about another product: when I don't know I do not write. I do not even wish to speak about the negative sides of others or point them out: not my style.
I don't quite understand the meaning of posting the link of my post: everybody can read what I have written and informed by going a few posts higher in this tread. And what I have written is simply the way to use the p2 and what can be done/achieved with it: nowhere is there question of "surgery", "modifications", etc.. which you suggest are necessary to make it possible to work with the p2. And you are using the word "modifications" once again below! There is none such modifications to be done.
I am sorry, but I have said it clearly when I joined LLF, that the reason why I was joining is to inform ( as rightly as possible) and to help where I can, but also to put things right when presented the wrong way. I shall do so each time when I judge it necessary, as here.
I shall give it a rest as soon as wrong things are put rightly.
Thanks to understand my position.
I hear you...by "camp" you mean those who dare using a back other than yours on your cameras?
I don't belong to any "camp" when it comes to cameras and I turst my experience for giving a solid and un-biased advice.
I have given my comments on the use of 3rd party backs on the P2 and as far as modifications go, these are YOUR words, not mine:
I also don't think that the way this discussion progresses helps the OP in choosing his route, therefore I suggest that we both give it a rest.
