Good luck on getting, one. It shouldn't be much of a problem once the Plus backs are more readily available. As for me and my P30 Contax combo, I wouldn't get rid of it for the world. I'm blown away everyday I shoot it by the detail and color. My customers really love the files. I also wouldn't do the upgrade, I think the screen is good enough since I tether mostly. I like you would love to see asa 50 to compensate for the 1/125 flash sync!!
I am hoping to scoop up a P21 or P30 for my contax as the new plus backs arrive, has anyone seen any pricing on these or have they even been for sale yet as "older" backs? I dont think the new backs are worth it for me because I dont want to drop 15k on a back that I am still not entirely happy with. my main issue is that the lowest asa is 100 and with the 1/125 flash synch of the contax i would be making some serious concessions from swithching over from my canon 1dsmkII (1/250 and 50 asa). It would be cool if Phase could lower the asa witha firmware update but not sure if that kinda thing is possible.
please dont suggest the ZD!
