Yes, I saw those...  Almost medical.   I look forward to seeing those kinds of details in my nature photography.  ;)

Contrary to the very first images shown from Aptus-II 12, the newer ones are pretty much astonishing.. wow
I wonder which way now will Phase One backs go. I hope we won't see the same results but in a P1 digiback body..

I guess that's the difference between me taking snaps and letting a pro shoot with it :) (same back, same camera, same software)

Yair

Ha, ha  :D

No offence Yair but those new shots are staggering and make yours look like my three year old niece shot them.  :P

the get dpi shots look really astonishing.
 
i never was a hi pixel fanboy, thinking that workflow, flawless files and great lenses are the most important aspects in my architecture shooting field. also i am not a big fan of changing workflows ( i am even very scary about that !!) once it works fine, but 'll take this pill now and will step up to the afi10 on my artec.
its great that i can get it ( as well as the A12 ) in afi/hy6 mount, i really love open standards, its so practical.
it starts to be tempting now for me to step up resolution wise, doesnt matter if my architecture clients need that directly or not. at least for my art work and for exposition prints it  looks in any case very promising.

The Rollei 6008 AF is not supported by Phase One/Leaf.  Its mount is different from the Hy6 mount I learned earlier this week.
The Rollei 6008 AF should take backs from Hasselblad and Sinar though.

Hello,

The Rollei Hy6 and the Leaf Afi are identical, to the very best of my knowledge, and accept exactly the same accessories and backs and lenses. The Rollei/Zeiss/Schneider lenses that will function on the Rollei 6008 will work just as well on either the Hy6 or Leaf Afi. Which is what led me to be so eager to buy the Leaf, since I already had all the lenses I needed and they are gems.

No, the Hy6 doesn't take Aptus backs.  You have to get an AFi-xxx (instead of the Aptus-xxx) back if you want to use it on a Hy6/AFi camera.

Yes, Rollei lenses are still available new.  Just got a couple myself this week!  :)

Not sure I understand this. Why would an Aptus back in AFi mount work on an AFi and not a Hy6? Are you saying that the dealer who posted this thread got it wrong?

I believe Brad means specifically an "AFi versioned Aptus" is required for mounting rather than an Aptus. I think a lot of speculation and confusion remains regardless. I have a meeting scheduled with DHW in New York this week and hope to clarify some things...

Yep, thank you for the clarification, Steve.

Graham, I have never seen Leaf refer to the AFi-II 10 digital back for example, as an Aptus AFi-II 10 (or any other combination of "Aptus" and AFi").  I've always seen the AFi-mount backs marketed simply as AFi's.

Perhaps I simply missed the co-mingling somewhere, but my understanding is no Aptus back is going to fit an AFi/Hy6, and one cannot simply buy it in AFi mount the way one can buy it in Hasselblad V or Mamiya mount.  (Basically I'm not sure there's any such thing as an "Aptus back in AFi mount", at least officially).

This is why the news of the AFi-II 12 is such a big deal, as the Aptus-II 12 isn't an option for the AFi/Hy6.

In an unrelated note...  I'm getting sooooooo tired of writing "Hy6/AFi"...  It's the same camera!!  (yeah, yeah, 'cept for the battery terminals).  I think we need a name like "Phamiya" to capture the mix of brands involved with this camera: Rolleiflex, Leaf and Phase...

Rolleafase??  Haha-- Rolleaf for short?  :)

As others have mentioned, not quite. The lenses are fully interchangeable - the backs, prisms, and little things are different. But its the lens interchangeability that really makes this work.

On another note - HiFi is a great name for the Hy6/AFI camera.... of course, let us not forget Sinar as well. HiFiS?
