Well, in fair defense of Leaf service I have to state that I received nothing but first class attention when I had problem with my back. The FireWire port on my A75S got loose and it was replaced and Fedex to me at Leaf expanse in matter of 8 hour. The back was out of hands for less than 36 hours including shipping both ways and this is very impressive. The attention that I get from Leaf America is outstanding. Rick Adshead is always there whenever I have any technical concern with any Leaf product and will not stop until we will find satisfactory solution.
Yair, you know very well that I am one very happy customer and a loyal Leaf user. I tried all digital backs in the past and I believe that Leaf produces the best files. I have experienced none of the problems mention by others here. I prise Leaf on everything they rightly deserve and that include LCII and I am very verbal about it. My complain here has nothing to do with the product quality.
I strongly believe that current A75S users (which started shipping just a few months ago) should be allowed platform change if Leaf wants us to switch to their camera. Current offer is a slap in a face as compared to Sinar offerings.
Andre of course you are allowed a platform change, but nobody "wants" you to switch to our camera. I mean it would be great if you do but you are not forced into it.
You have to understand that the back that is mounted on the AFi body is being developed specifically for this platform and is not just an S in a new dress, which is why we cannot just swap the backs should you choose to buy into the AFi system.
I do not know what Sinar has to offer to A75S users but I doubt it'll be a better deal than ours.
@ David, as far as I know there is no lens included in the basic package.
@ John, I believe you have an email waiting for you, inviting you for a tour of the Leaf HQ in Israel.
