Are we kidding here?  I don't care if it says Hyundai on it... as long as its a great camera and takes any back that I could ever want to own or rent.

I realize digital back sales are driving the sale of cameras, lenses + accessories, but I think it's just weird to see anything but a Rollei logo on the camera.  It's a Rollei, so call it a Rollei.  I'd cover with black tape any other logo to avoid having to explain "It's really a Rollei camera, manufactured by Jenoptik, but labeled a Leaf, PhaseOne, or Sinar.

hi BJNY,

just a little precision, but important: it is a "Jenoptik" camera, manufactured by "Franke & Heidecke" (not Rollei), and labeled Leaf and Sinar. That's the right way to present it.

Best regards,
Thierry

Hi
This is what I have heard from a few of my "sources" in the past few weeks. I think this answers the questions that have been raised on 5 pages of this post. To me this makes sense as Jenoptik owns Sinar. If you look at the press releases you only see Sinar & Leaf branded cameras on the Hy6 platform.
Thanks Denis
( .... contact(s) at Jenoptik says that only two
DB manufacturers are allowed to use the camera. This leaves Phase out.
I guess Phase at the moment prefer to avoid this subject when asked and
lead their dealers and customers to believe that all options are still
open, but as a matter of fact they are not... )

Thanks Denis,

this is about all what can be said today.

Jeff:
You have your values in the right place, but I believe you are probably unusual. How many Phase backs do you think would be sold if they only mounted on a camera identical to a Hy6 but that said Bronica on the front, and  took Schneider lenses that were branded as Bronica Zenza lenses? (The primary selling point would be that nobody would want to steal it from you.)
Who knows, the way things are going, Phase may have to resurrect the Bronica line to have a platform.

i guess that tops all "what ifs" in this absolutely going nowhere thread....

hcubell: what camera do you want to buy, when and which Dback...maybe someone can help you put it together....but remember if the Hy6 is anywhere near that list or you are planing to shoot anything in the next 6 months, it is not going to happen
no matter how hard you beat the dead horse....the chance of phase coming to this forum and making an announcement one way or another between now and april? are very very slim....

it is so sad that it is these kind of discussions in this forum that get 6 pages of responses....and yes i am guilty as well...merry christmas everyone...
