I'm an avid Leica fan ( M8, MP, etc etc ) and it serves me well.
But I love landscape photography and I would love to jump to a digital MF setup ( film MF is a big no no in my book, I'm just too lazy with film. Not an option, period ! )
New systems are out of my reach and got a few options around my dealers :
H3D with 22mp : the most pricey option
Mamiya ZD : good middle range
H2F with Phase One 10mp back : the cheap option.
Now... which one ?
I like to do low iso's, tripod based but also long exposure's.. AF not critical at all.
I have a good Leica lens collection but no MF collection at all, so I'm open to any system, provided its good.
H3D seems the best option but its damn pricey. Dont know if I can stretch this much.
Mamiya ZD : seems a very good system, but bit out of date ? No continuity here ?
H2F : cheap option but a very inferior back ( 10mp only ) but has the ability to use fim as well ( its a H2F ).
What is your guys take ? I want something modular, not ridiculus expensive ( 3,000 - 4,000 usd ) and that I would see an improvement over 35mm.
Another thing crossed my mind : getting a D3X.
I do have Leica lens and bodies , but also have a Nikon D2h for tele and macro work. Just have a couple of Nikon Lens but that would simplify me a bit and honestly, perhaps between a D3x and old MF digital technology, I would be doing a better purchase buying a Nikon D3x or a Canon 1DS MKIII ?
At least would be more versatile... What you guys think ?
thanks for anyone that shares their vision and experience beforehand !
