    Hard to find but there is a Leaf Rep here. Contact Steve Hendrix at PPR Atlanta

    Thanks Guy. The 54S seems to be the rarest; along with a bunch of 17 & 22 models I already have several offers for 75s' but don't want to deal to with those huge file sizes. I wonder if they didn't sell many 54s backs or people are on hanging on because they like them a lot.

    Not sure i am after a P25 Plus or p30 plus but I am buying new, just need to decide which one and I keep bouncing back and forth. I will get a chance to try them both so that will clear it up.
    But in my searching around leafs seem to be hard to find for the S models. Seems like most folks just don't sell them after they get them.

    Out of curiosity, can I ask your reasons for not going with the Sinar?

    One certainly is price. i also like the function keys better on the Phase but I certainly have not made a final decision yet and I need to see files. I also am a fan of capture one and i like the new Pro beta that has corrections built in for there lenses ala hassy style. The other is i come from the DMR and M8 and like the Kodak sensors. I also have Capture Integration coming to the workshop and would like to give them my business. I really have to shoot them next week and see for myself but I am leaning Phase way right now.

    Also I am buying a kit from them that includes the New Phase/Mamiya AFD-III body and there new 80 lens. Plus a option to get a Horseman SWD with 24 or 35 digitar. Most likely the 24mm. So everything will be new and ready to go. Just have to sell my Mamiya AFD-II with current 80 mm other than that I am ready to go pretty much.

    Its partly software and partly because they just introduced new models so whatever I buy now is going to lose value quicker than the Leaf which is current. I basically need the back for a couple of jobs over the next couple of months and doubt that I'll be keeping it after its done. I did the same with Phase backs that I owned, sold them when I didn't need them. I don't use these backs for my personal work.
