mhm, I've got the LS lenzes, labeled shneider. - And my equipment is used everyday all day -
- Phase one DB's are absolutely perfect
- After some time of use of the Shneider LS lenses, i though, what a Poor build quality for a "german" lens, that plastic focus ring and/or switch to AF-MF is realy not that well build, if you compare with 30 year old Hassy lenses wich are SPOT on perfect, precize, no feeling of :" it can break appart at any moment".
- Also the Phase/Mamiya Body isn't that trust worthy, i can't get out to shoot without being scared it breaks... Just the clumbsy feeling of the body, don't trust it at all, like i could trust my old Hasselblad 500...
I thus changed to some thing more "thrust worthy" for most things, and bought a Rm3di, with the " real " shneiders , and immidiatly you see the quality difference of these lenses compaired to the Phase Shneider LS lenses.. at more or less the same cost..
On the one hand, they are sharper, they give more image for the same buck, and the build quality is waaaaayyyyyy better..
So dunno, i am thinkin still to change my M645 phase one, for ah Hasselblad V version and go back to Hassies ..
