    The landscape changes. Interesting the 150 2.8 looks nice from the specs

    The ZD is still a steal for $7K. Full size 22MP. Great IQ.

    Not as fast as a P+ back, but a lot better qulaity than a 1DsIII.

    Just when I made up my mind to sell the ZD back... In any event, I agree with Peter, it's good to see Mamiya still in the hunt. The RZ is still one of my favorite cameras.

    I agree on the RZ. I've kept mine even though I no longer have a digital back for it. Maybe in future. But for film, it's hard to top.

    I think this is just great for the industry of MF. Hopefully Mamiya will help keep Phase and Aptus in check on pricing.
