I am facing the problem, which has been discussed in great depth. BUT... i still can't find an answer. I have been shooting film until 2003, first on a contax 645, then on the H1 and had to move to digital in 2004. Sold all my MF gear and got myself 2 canons 5Ds and all the necessary primes. So far everything went fine. Now that canon has released its ds MKIII I would very much like to upgrade. But in which direction?
I would love to shoot MF again: the image quality, the bigger viewfinder etc.
But I also love the convenience of my canon gear, although the lenses beneath 50mm ar really bad.
So whats an (affordable) option?
- refurb P1 with a Mamiya 645
- wait for the new P1-Mamiya camera
- leaf aptus 22 with mamiya/contax/H2
or just go for the MKIII in the meantime?
will the MkIII be a real noticable step from the 5D in image quality?
i went to calumet the other day and had a look at the new hy6. lovely camera, but way to expensive and who knows if rollei is going to stay in business?
Sorry if I ask the same questions like so many others before, but it is really a difficult one.
With a lot of money involved.
thank you for any help or links
