    We have a P45+ (39MP) Contax mount in stock and it only has 1100 captures on it. It will also have a full one year warranty. We are asking $17,000.00 for it. You can PM me if you like or give me e-mail or call.

    17.000$ is to expensive for me;-( I am a photo student from Denmark, so the money is a little tight;-( But thanks

    so you are close to the source ;-)
    Ask Phase for a P20/+ or P21/+. You should get one for a very reasonable price, especially in Contax mount.

    You might want to search out a Kodak DCS Pro back for your Contax body. They are 16MP square sensors and show up pretty regularly for around $3500 US. Very nice image quality, but it's an older design and you need to keep it at ISO 50 for optimum.

    I have used the kodak on a Mamiya 645 AFD, with good results, but I cant find any on the web;-(

    If it doesn't bother you that Sinar probably stopped making backs, you might be able to find an eMotion 54 LV for about €5000. They are of course still in business and still honouring warranties, and the backs have adapters for different cameras.

    Just to add to Carsten's post, Sinar comes with 3 year warranty too, so that is a lot of peace of mind for your investment. Carsten and I are both using this back.

    Wait. Jesper. You're selling a Leaf Aptus 17 and buying a Leaf Valeo? I assume Valeo 22? That's an interesting move...would like to hear more.

    Leaf Valeos can be shot untethered, but it requires a Compaq pda and a bulky battery pack. I used to do it, but it was rather crude and drove me nuts.
