    Worth it to upgrade?

    Hi all,

    I've recently started using a MF digital system...an Aptus 22 on a Mamiya 645 AFD. Really liking it so far in limited use.

    My question is relatively simple...

    Is it worthwhile to spend the money upgrading the body to an AFDII or AFDIII?

    of particular concern to me is the AF system...which i find to be truly lacking, since my other camera has nikon's top of the line AF, and almost never misses. i shoot mainly fashion/editorial type stuff...so it's not like i need or am trying to find a MF body with 51 point 3D tracking...just, more control and accuracy.

    Cheers,
    David

    Both are upgrades from your AFD re focusing, but the the AFD 3 is the best of those -- the DF is a full step better still.

    thanks jack

    i wish i could afford a DF, way outta budget. i'm soothing that lack of cash by saying i also may have the occasional film itch as well. :P
