    You won't like S2 files in C1. That i can assure you of even a good profile for color will not get rid of the artifacts. The S2 is nice but my opinion only and for me not ready. I want bullet proof but that's me.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    David Farkas has an icc for C1 that works pretty well; matches LR default fairly well.
    However, even though I am not a great fan of LR for overall workflow, it's not a bad "raw processor" . Seems to work on the samplke S2 files.

    Does nothing for artifacts,Noise, tonal range just color. Bottom line nothing totally dedicated to the S2.

    Agree. I shot AFD II (unusable shutter lag), AFD III (better but still laggy).
    The DF with much improved shutter response and AF actually comes close to the feeling I have shooting my 5D MK II. Just wish my P45 back could perform better at higher than ISO 200.

    I have absolutely NO regrets about spending the $$ on upgrading to DF.

Note however with the LS lens, I can in fact perceive the added release lag-time for that added steps required for the leaf shutter to fire -- it all begins immediately after the shutter press though, just takes longer to accomplish everything necessary before the actual fire.

    And the P40+ is amazing too!

    Personally I find the Contax 80mm looks far more interesting.



    Of the Mamiya lenses I like the RZ80mm 2.8 and the older 80mm 1.9.

    I also have a Schneider 480mm 8x10 lens at it is simply beautiful.
    I just don't find that in the Phase Schneider lenses.
