    IQ140 timelines?

    So, the big dogs are in the neighborhood and shipping fairly regularly now. Any word on the little pup? (IQ140).

    I think you should go for the 160. I know where you can get one today, I think Lance has a extra at DT. LOL

    Its a great question Graham and I'm hearing nada, nothing, zilch. Not what you want to hear I know.

    Probably august - that's what I have been told (by Phase). If that's the case, you have only a few weeks left to make up your mind re IQ160

    August actually is fine for me. I admit that I am getting very tempted by the IQ160 too - thanks Guy, this isn't good for my wallet!! I blame you entirely for this

    Graham -- think FULL FRAME Seriously, makes the most out of both of your camera systems... That's only my humble and less-than-2-cent opinion though.

    But Graham, the trade-in is worth more when you buy the higher priced back.

    This is similar to the Jack Flesher argument regarding the 160 vs. the 180. Talk about a slippery slope.

    I'm feeling "enabled" again ... I was already on a slippery slope but that's now transitioning towards a precipitous drop

    But in my case it was more like a -- like, "WTF, I am already spending so much to get the new tech, why not spend the little extra and go all the way!"

    I have the feeling that getDPI should have a separate enabler section with carefully controlled reading permissions.

    My understanding from my dealer is that the IQ backs for Contax, V and H Hasselblads are "scheduled" to start shipping in mid to late August. This is almost two months later than I had originally been lead to believe. I have a trip scheduled for the third week in August, and I sure hope to have my IQ180 by then.

    Guy, can you mail me the ski mask now that you're done with it? I'll need it to help facilitate the $10k upgrade difference for me between my gear and the IQ140 vs IQ160.
