    Well, truth be told, if I fined you it'd be a serious case of the pot calling the kettle black...

    Marc,

    Man, you really are a gear whore!! Less than 24 hours ago you told me that you'd decided NOT to upgrade to the 1DSMark111 as the Hassy had more than satisfied than nitch!! You sure are the right guy to get opinions from !! Sheeesh, I haven't even pulled the trigger on a digital back yet and you've already supplied your own store ! You must get really nice Christmas cards (?) from several manufacturers !!

    Having said all that, boy am I ever jealous ! But at least I know your weather sucks !

    Look forward to hearing your impressions, and know you'll have a great time doing so.

    Cheers ,

    Jim

    ps It's now time to go ahead and get the Alpa to use with that Aptus 75s !!

    Hey Jim, I could have just kept quiet about it (wink,wink) ...

    When I got home from freezing Miami to balmy Michigan there was a message from my long time Canon dealer and his discount was so good I couldn't resist. Guess he didn't want me to jump ship. Fortunately, there was also a message from a fellow who wanted to buy my SWC kit, which helped.

    Believe me, I do not confuse any 35mm DSLR with MF Digital. My main application of the Canon stuff is wedding work almost exclusively. Low light, f/1.2 & f/1.4 optics, high ISO, fast AF candid work. IQ is somewhat secondary to those criteria. And as any wedding shooter will tell you, you HAVE to have 2 of everything.

    Much as I drool over the ALPA, sadly I just don't have the application for one. I don't do landscape or city scape work at all (I leave that to the passionate experts). If I did, I'd be all over the ALPA & digital back. But business comes first.

    So, I may be selling the brand new Aptus 75s, and if so will list it here first at a very, very nice forum price ... including a new Mamiya AFD-II kit thrown in. Those with an RZ system will also get an adapter for that camera. ALPA makes a Mamiya adapter Jim ... ( wink, wink ). Stand by!
