Exactly why I don't shoot Nikon anymore. I hate there color but i do like there system. Myself I look at the DSLR's for PR work anymore. But that is just me.
It is not only you. Some have sensitive eyes, others do not. In the end it is the photos that counts, and MFDB clear lends an upper hand to those who have the eyes.
Sure, Nikon and Canon have improved, by big steps. Yet... above files appear clear, if at all one has the eye. Else just go with a DSLR and be happy!
Yup, people are pixel peeping. Even anxious trying prove DSLR same as MFDB, which it is not. Why should it???
Then... what does DSLR vs MFDB do for your photos? MFDB lends to slower and more planned photos (even more if you use manual and spot meter, that is fun!), and there is less auto features than DSLR, slower focus that need more planning... ehh... sort of more photographic to folks like me (but we are all different) . I was a Nikon guy before, but Nikon lost me in digital with all auto features and lack of color etc. They are still not up to as pleasing colors of my Aptus 65. Does it matter? Lets face that it seems though that digital has finally reached a level that also DSLRs can have reasonable pleasing color rendering (with suffice processing), although for a critical eye not yet as pleasing as film was. Ok, that is my impression. Leaf Aptus though already have pleasing colors to my eye, far more than Nikon, and pleasing sort of FILM LIKE appearance, but... it is digital... not film clearly, not look like film .
Anyways... just some comments to all...
Yair, What about next quantom leap for Leaf? Any thoughts on a real full frame 645 sensor with Foveon like technology? Now that could be something for an amateur like me to upgrade to... if give it a some years and continued $$ coming in, and if still pleasing rendering that Leaf is known for... but not higher resolution than I also can use my good Mamiya lenses that were for film... Thanks!
