Hi,

The simple reason is while the images are beautiful, there are 3 main reasons.
 
1. I want to take pictures 'away from the car', ie, you can-not take camping equipment with the Seitz equipment as it is just too heavy and bulky.
 
2. At 52 my knees seem to be getting 'dodgy' ie I can start feeling them getting painful if I carry really heavy weights, especially up hill. (Weakest link in the chain as it were!).
 
3. I am getting more into workshops where Nikons etc are more suitable or relevant.
 
So when I look at the overall picture, I can find a smaller lighter camera, save my knees and not really loose any market in terms of print sales. Indeed the change would free me from the restriction of having just a 90mm and 250mm lens and allow me to shoot in more remote locations with a greater lens choice.

According to Schneider the lens covers 110 degrees at F22 and 96 degrees at F5.6.

I know Seitz state you can use a 75mm lens, but I have not tried.

Regards David.

Hi Leo,

Just weighed it and in the explorer case, it is exactly 15.4 kgs (33.95lbs) I use an army backpack and drysacs for each object with foam for protection. I use the logic that the backpack must be able to survive falling into water when out doors ie heavy rain etc and have three layers of protection. The back pack, a single large drysac inside that and then each object in a drysac again. If this were an issue to a buyer, I will throw in the backpack and all drysac / foam protection for free, so ready to use. (I do not use the explorer case on location). The amount of protection I give it, is why it is in such perfect condition. Regards David.
