I am considering moving back to shooting film for my wedding clients. I currently use D3's and have a M8 as well as a H3D.
I know with all the news on the S2 and the prices changes in the MFDB that looking at the R system does seem to have many negatives. I love the feel of the camera and have the option to purchase a R8 and DMR at a very good price, I also feel that the R glass produces a very different feel to the images and that is what I want to make my work different to everybody else that is shooting digital and over processing their images in PS.
So getting a couple of cheap R8 bodies (not sure if there are issues with the R8's I have seen some stuff about film scratching?) R9's seem to add little extra value??
Any advice, views and comments would be great as will only have a few days to decide if I change and if I do I will replace the M8 with the R system. As the new price here in OZ for the M8.2 is just stupid and the S2 is a joke, I do not see many moving from Phase or blad for the S2.
Thanks again for any advice as your combined experience is very welcome on this topic.
