Hey Guy I just saw your post and was wondering something. Why would you "want" a focal plane shutter?
I am a mamiya guy for about 20 years now and was happy back in the days when they had Leaf shutter lens. Actually they were the only lens that went on my camera except for the 120 Macro and 110 2.8
Even on my Pentax 6x7 system I had all the leaf shutter lens.
I have been totally dissapointed with mamiya not coming up with atleast 1 leafshutter lens that they have been promising for years now!!!
Or even an adaptor for the old lens would be great!!!
damn Snook you're like a broken record on this leaf shutter business.
there's lots of people with needs different from yours, and I guess all those very happy campers who have been using Mamiya (and Contax and Hassie mostly) with focal plane shutters are "wrong" according to you.
I like and need a focal plane shutter, the fast speeds are great for my work, and same for the huge majority I suspect, so, please
give it a rest will you.
we GET the message you would like a leaf shutter - and posting it here again and again and... AGAIN... isnt going to change anything, it just makes people not take you seriously
