Guy has requested a quick update on what Leaf is up to and about the current offerings;

Product wise, the current range consists of Aptus-II 10 (56MP), II 7 (33MP) II 6 (28MP) and II 5 (22MP at 6K EUR and 0.8 sec/ frame).
The Phase One 645AF, DF and all the lenses and accessories as well as C1 5.0.X are also available from Leaf. Cameras are avilable separately or bundled with Aptus-II backs and 80mm lenses (FP or LS respectively).
All the above backs shoot at ~ 1 fps or faster with no buffer, tethered or to a CF card and use FW800 for tethering.
33MP and 28MP backs can also be bought as refurbished Aptus 75 and Aptus 65. These are a bit slower, with a lesser screen and FW400
On the software side we have LC 11.2.9 which runs on SL in 64-bit and we have added Live View on the AFDII/ III and Phase One 645AF/DF range (was not available before). FWIW many still consider Leaf's Live View as the best in the MF market.
Capture One 5.0.1 supports files from all Aptus-II and AFi-II backs (including reading Leaf's profiles and curves) and a future version will add tethered support.
LC Remote app for iPhone and iPod Touch is expected to be on the app store in the next few weeks (already submitted to Apple for their final testing)
For people who use "old" Aptus backs (pre Leaf Imaging) we offer extended 2-yr warranties which include taking the back in for a check n' clean and a firmware update so it can be kept up-to-date with future versions.
Many Phase dealers have taken Leaf on as well which has kept me busy for the last 3 months, training everyone and bringing them up to speed on hardware and software. The support and logistics systems have been merged into the Phase One system. We'll also be moving into new premises early in the new year.
There are a couple of new backs coming which I will have more news on soon.
