I shoot Nikon, Mamiya, Sinar and Hasselblad, but who knows, I may one day shoot Franke&Heidecke. Is this an exclusive thread for owners of one particular brand and only that?
I am curious about the news. It was Thierry who said there was 'no news', so I took it as it may be news latter.
Regarding 35mm, no, I don't work for them (Nikon Canon), but I see the trend of MF loosing market share to them.
Also PENTAX and Leica are going with the smallest increment
in sensor size to fight them, de facto creating another format, one that fits between Nikon-Canon and full size 645.
Meanwhile Hy6 is waiting for a LARGER size sensor chip.
Leica is a complete newcomer to MF and with decreased market share they will have to take it from someone....
Who will blink or hesitate?
Don't you shoot Mamiya? I don't get why you put so much time into the Rollei/Franke&Heidecke threads. Are you not satisfied with your set-up? or do you have stock in Nikon or Canon?
I shoot with now three older Rollei's ... 2 6008 AF cameras and one 2.8F TLR and couldn't be happier. If F&H did anything wrong, they made their cameras too good - and too reliable. Nothing wrong with the older stuff - I've had no reason to upgrade to the Hy6/AFi.
