I was handed 3 Phase backs and was running in 1 minute not to say anything here but sometimes simplicity rules the roost. .

    My impression was it was the camera that had the steep learning curve not the back. When David got it set up properly, somebody would knock a button out of place. The controls on the right side need locks or they should ship a roll of gaffers tape to lock them down

    Guy looking forward to it. Let me know if there is anything that I may be able to assist with from down here. This should be a great hands on event.

    If you're saying the start date is June 20, you can put me down...and all the gear I have available as well.

    I was in Helsinki today, and visited the Leaf dealer there. I saw the Hy6 (AFi) in the flesh for the first time. It seemed a little smaller and lighter than I expected. Nice! AF seemed fast too, like a typical DSLR but all my lenses are manual anyway at this stage. The LCD display in the finder was very similar to my 6008 so I felt right at home. Unfortunately there was only the waist level finder to try. They didn't have the others yet.

    The feeling of the camera in the hand and the weight were the two things I was anxious to find out. Felt great - I'm sold!

    p.s. selling one grandmother, low mileage, excellent cook, $4000

    I think you will like it Graham. It's like a 6008AF, only smaller, lighter, and even better ergonomically. I don't have one, but in my time testing it, I really liked it. But since I only shoot film, I have not really made the jump...the body only pricing in the US is still very very high, and I have not seen the 6x6 magazine yet, so I just have not got around to making the switch. But for you, I think it would be perfect.

    I've just been advised by my Sydney dealer,that my eMotion-75LV,the last version with the new 2.5 inch has arrived.
    The rotating adapter as well.
    Look forward seeing the results.
    Cheers,
    Willem.
