In line with my previous posts about lenses and all... I'm interested in some anecdotes from all you guys who shoot various mf and 35mm systems... and this request is driven solely by budget, lol.
I've shot canon for a number of years, as well as a sony a900 for about 6 months, and now canon 5d mark II's for the studio I shoot weddings for. I'm almost onboard as a general creative director for a small clothing company I've shot for (meaning I'll be shooting, laying out the catalogs, designing the website, running the blog, getting everyone coffee )... and we're looking to improve the equipment we're shooting with.
I'm presently on track towards a p30/-30+... but have recently seen that original p45 backs go well below $9K and p25 backs at around $5-6K. With those prices, we might actually be able to upgrade the on-location computers as well....
So, speaking in terms of resolution, how do the 22mp backs fair against the canons/nikons/sony ... and is there a huge difference between the 22 and 31 mp backs? I think the 22mp would be sufficient for us, but I fear moire would be a problem since I shoot fabrics (even though they aren't woven fabrics). Ultimately, the p30+ (or original p45) looks like the best bet, but man the current used back prices are very compelling.
Guy, wanna let me borrow yours... I promise I'll bring it back
