Sounds like a nice tool. So you are a Leaf guy now? No more 645's ?

Re: Leaf AFi 7 review
Well actually as you can read in the review I got the AFi temporary.
I will be on the Leaf booth on photokina and I will be in Copenhagen in November for Leaf so I wanted to get myself familiar with the whole line up.

And because I did not yet shoot with the AFi I thought it would be time to do that.

I will be using the Mamiya RZ67ProII for studio work and the Mamiya 645AFD/III for location work (both with the Leaf Aptus by the way) after the evaluation period.

Good review, will be following it.

And besides hating you for having all the fun toys, i'm actually getting me a RZ67 to go next to my two 645's now. No digital back yet though, i'm sticking to film because it's cooler.. not because i dont have the money for a digital back.. honest.. thats it .. i promise ;)

Anyways, good work =)

Frank, nice to see your review. I've decided to 'back burner' the MF camera until we come visit next year. I'll spend the money on more location lighting, lenses and education at Lepp Institute in Los Osos, up near the train car restaurant where we shot. So, I'll suffer along with my 1DsMIII until then.

Good idea, that's also more important.
