I'll have a rather strongly worded artcile on this later today.
I think everyone needs to wait until theses hassies are around to actually play with..
Upgrading an H1/2 to a 3 is not the end of the world if, as I suspect it is just a firmware upgrade
The claim that it will not work with other backs is proably BS too
a) My sinar/your P45 work on a H1/2 they probably will with a 3
B ) Back manufaturesrs will simply work out what electronics are being outputted and design accordingly maybe at loss of some Exif data or lense data
(I am sure BMW say 'our cars only work with BMW wheels' - but everyone knows there is a thriving market for aftermarket alloys!)
c) it is true that thier lenses will probalby no longer cover the full 645 area - bad for filmies but no bad thing for dig chaps, hassies movenment to the 'new format' has enabled the 28 lense to be possible and may also bring future offereings
Did you compare your H2 to the 3?
Is the back mounting the same ??
Is the mirror any way modified to allow a 'deeeper penetrating lense'
Did you try and put the 28 on your 2 does it fit - did it fire
One these questions can be answered (negativley) Phase and Leaf owners can be angry, Emotion owners will smugly order another system fitting for £600 and move on
