I heard from the Canadian Phase One distributor last night that the current Phase One/AFDIII body will be replaced by a new body in July of this year. I also
heard that Capture One 5.0 will be released when Snow Leopard for Apple is released. Apparently it will be a jump like C1 3.x was to C1 4.x
The new DF camera AFDIV was announced a while back with a vertical grip, leaf shutter lenses, etc. Unless and until I see one, use one, and its not a warmed over cow pie of a camera with first generation Canon Elph shutter lag that they are trying to sell for $4,500, its immaterial. I mean they have been trying to sell AFDII and III cameras as viable competitors to the H system and Hy6 systems, which is just baldfaced, shameless puffing. You have to have a gigantic set of heuvos to sell the Phamiya cameras as being better than the H and Hy6, unless you need a focal shutter. If you need 1/4000 shutter, sure thing, the AFd cameras make sense. But over all, they just feel crappy with a digital back. Nice lenses, although, now they are expensive.
