    Thanks Guys! Wallet's a lot lighter...

    Went down to b3k today and played with a few backs. Walter Borchenko spent a great amount of time with me, and just a wonderful man. He also had no problems separating me and my money

    The race was between IQ180, Aptus 12 and P65+. The IQ was beautiful, almost Leica like in build quality, but I just could not justify the extra 15K outlay over the Aptus II 12 or P65+.

    The P65+ has a great promo on, so was very attractive, but I found the screen on the Leaf much better, and also felt I was getting the latest Dalsa chip, and 80MP on the Leaf. Also, Yair seems like a nice enough guy

    Ended up ordering the Aptus II with DF and 80LS, should be here in a week or so.

    Now off to spec out the tech camera. Will likely be a RM3Di with Rodie HR/23/40/70. Need to spend a bit more time with Walter to figure things out.

    ...and sadly have to let go of heap of Leica gear I have. I just dont see myself using it as much once I get the tech camera.

    Thanks all for all the help, this site has been invaluable!
