I will NOT let you say this: this is simply over the board!
1. I have never said that you are a liar! WHAT I said was that Sinar's and Jenoptik's communication shortly before, during and after Photokina was clear, concerning the Leica deal.
----> YOU suggested it was not clear, that we had spread rumors and misinformation
I am sorry, I cannot let this stand as such. The proves and company statement and press releases are there to confirm what I say, and they have been issued in time.
2. You speak about "well-informed" sources without naming them, telling you that there are discussions going on with PO. In your initial post your speak about "various" sources. Now all of a sudden it is ONE single source. How things change from one post to another!
But again: this is NOT the point. What the hell is the problem IF there WERE discussions going on with PO at the time of Photokina??? WHY do you even mention this? Is it a crime, if such is the case?
Did you report them at this time? Probably, if my remembrance is right. What have you been answered when you asked the question about an adapter for PO? Dig back and read my answers, please.
FACT is: I have informed since very long (January '07), that there will be NO attachment/adapter from Sinar (understand Jenoptik), when asked. That must be the result of these discussions, don't you think so? And as such it has been informed by Sinar (Jenoptik), since under my name stands "Sinar AG Switzerland".
Not only has it been informed by myself on LL, but also on our homepage during the "Ask your questions about the Hy6" tread.
And ANY Sinar employee you would have asked would have told you the very same answer: that PO was not part of the project and as such that there will be no adapter from us for the attachment of their backs (so for Hasselblad).
Again, you suggest that it is (was) Sinar/Jenoptik having created rumors and not having cleared them: I simply cannot let you say this.
I simply cannot understand what you are trying to say but to put purposely dirt on the comapny names.
3. I wish also to clear "if you want to continue calling me a liar"
You purposely distort what I am writing. WHERE did I write this?
I simply and only suggested to avoid speaking about/believing "well-informed" sources. Some recent events have shown where it leads when not doing so.
I feel sorry, but I did not know that you were a journalist, and I actually don't really know what you are excatly, since you never described yourself. I would have it hard to discredit you as a journalist when not knowing you are one.
4. Your P.S.
I must be dreaming! You have the courage to turn around the subject and ask this question again? Do you actually read what has been communicated?
I feel sorry Edmund, you have no right to bash on me or on Sinar the way you are doing it. And I will be here each and any time to correct your non-sense.
We are talking about old events here, which happened one year ago. I have no idea what is happening now.
However, regarding my reports of those old events, when someone who happens to be a CEO of a company involved in some topic talks to me off the record about that topic, I act professionally as a journalist and call him a well-informed source because what he is saying is not exactly what one calls a rumor, and as a CEO that person is entitled to set his own rules about how he talks.
Apart from that if you want to continue calling me a liar please go ahead if it makes you happy - I don't get offended that easily, I just find it's getting boring
PS. Thierry, instead of wasting effort on figuring out whether I'm a decent journalist, why not go tell your company I would like to mount my Phase back on the Hy6 and am ready to buy such a Hy6 ? That seems a more constructive and lucrative use of your time. Surely representatives of a company are allowed to tell their company what products clients would wish to buy ?
