The AFi might work today, but I bought it at Photokina 2008 (september), got it three weeks later and by April the following year it still didn't work. If three trips to Leaf didn't cure the problem, that sensor, screen and AF didn't align, how am I expected to do this on my own?
The adapter plate for the Linhof wasn't delivered as promised right after Photokina, but three months later. I shelled out nearly 40.000€ for the whole system, but I couldn't earn one Cent with it. Some people buy cameras for fun, I do too, but my professional tools have to give me return, otherwise my business go bust.
Waiting for Nikon to possibly change the live view in a future upgrade doesn't make me jump to buy it now.Once they manage, I might reconsider. But as they still not support MacOS 10.8.after half a year after the first betas ( Canon just managed now, xrite is still scratching their back) How can I expect them to handle that soon? The cost for one day of commercial production runs about 6-10.000€ including retouching. Neither me nor my clients can afford to slow down due to the camera.
Both great tools, very precise, but different uses.
