I am requesting advice regarding choice of a digital back. I am considering P65+ and Aptus II-12.
(IQXXX backs are not in my budget and lower MP backs do not interest me)
I intend to use this back with a technical camera (AS Factum or Cambo RC-400) with Rodenstock 32mm Digaron, mostly for landscape work. My prime concern is image quality to be far superior to Pentax 645D.
Here is what I have learned from my research so far:
+ 80MP is definitely a plus.
+ Ability to check focus via 100% preview
+ Image Quality (from what I have seen on flickr or 500px)
? Has a cooling fan instead of heat sink
? Some stories of troubled customer support & repairs
? subpar LCD screen
- Cost compared to P65+
- Slow user interface
+ Cost compared to Aptus II-12
+ DXO Mark gives it high score for color depth
+ better customer support from PhaseOne
+ Image quality based on what I see on flickr and 500px
? Wonder if 60MP is significant compared to a 40MP file
- Inability to check focus via 100% preview (is this really true)
I would love to hear from owners of these backs as well as other insightful members which one they would pick and why.
Thanks so much for your time.
