Hello,

I have a question for Yair.

Why doesn't the new Aptus-II 10 come with a tilt screen as the new AFi-II 10?

As I use a Mamiya RZ with a waist level finder a tilt screen would come in very handy.

Cheers

If Leaf would allow the purchase of the AFiII-10 digital back alone,
you could fit it onto the RZ with their adapter plate
and get your tilt screen.

Hello BJNY,

But would that back also fit my Mamyia 645AFDII and Sinar P2?

Theorectically, it would fit the p2, but not the AFD.
However, my guess is Leaf won't sell it by itself without an AFi camera body.

Hello BJNY,

This is the sort of thing camera manufactures seem to do the really annoys me.

If they can do it to one back why not do it all all the others.

Cheers

Simon,
Yair should give you the official answers.
I'm only going on my knowledge of the Hy6/AFi platform.

Simon and Billy,

The AFi-II can be ordered as a "back only" and will fit a P2 as will as an RZ via adapters made by Leaf. It won't fit the AFD. The tilting screen and the rotating sensor are two of the differentiators between the Aptus-II and the AFi-II lines.

It is 7am here in Köln and we're off to the messe to finish the setup for the big show tomorrow.
