Hi Pete, I intended to do this today but work got in the way.   

The next two weeks are a bit busy, but I will do my best.

All I can say (as heresay!) that if you imagine a building and capture with the 28mm then you will see the distortion, ie lines not straight - curvy walls!

Switch on DAC, and you could run a straight edge anywhere and it is perfect.  No increase in processing time, no perceptible loss of detail.  It really is that good.

I do not have the 28mm lens. However, I have seen a demonstration of just how effective the DAC features are with the 28mm lens. Very impressive. It would be very interesting to see how  the Mamiya 28mm lens compares without any software based correction. The Mamiya samples I have seen on the net look like there is a good bit of barrel distortion.

Don't forget Howard that a lot of the new stuff is available with Firmware just on FC 481, for your H3D.

I understand, but what did Phase charge for an upgrade from the P45 to the P45+, around $6K?
I also am perplexed by the decision to eliminate a film back option on the H3D II.

EPd,

not everybody knows all and has read the specs about the Hy6: that's why we are here, you as a Rolleiflex specialist, me as the Sinar representative.

Best regards,
Thierry

Are you kidding? I thought that would be clear by now! Maybe a good idea to read the specs?

fair enough, EPd, I am not too lazy to answer those questions.

FYI: I am not the Sinar SALES representative here but simply a help for those wishing to know about Sinar products and to correct wrong information (sometimes), since I am simply trying to help with what I know, certainly not to sell. And most importantly, here on LL with my FREE choice to be here and never been asked to do so.

Best regards,
Thierry

Sorry Thierry, not looking for an argument but I am not here to be called in when people are too lazy to read up on basic information. I am not a sales representative who's job it is (and hopefully doesn't mind) to answer the same questions over and over again. I am just a photographer who tries to share interesting information with colleagues. Next time I'll leave questions like these for others to answer.

Regards,
EPd

While Thierry and EPd discuss, the short answer to the question is yes. Same mount. All older lenses will work on Hy6 and its various models. Hy6 has auto focus, and thus is able to use AF capabilities of newer lenses.

Thanks Geoffrey,

to be a little more precise:

- the Hy6 does accept all existing 6000 series lenses, AF or non-AF, as well as the new for this camera produced AFD lenses: a total of more then 40 lenses. See also the list of all lenses fitting the Hy6 published here by myself some time ago:

http://luminous-landscape.com/forum/index....showtopic=23496

- with manual focus there is a focus indicator telling the in-focus.

- if the question is about back adaption: the Rolleiflex 6008 and the Hy6 do not use the same adapter system.

Best regards,
Thierry

I am not as often as you guys here! Anyway, I asked because Phase guys are so confident..... claiming they already have the solution!!!

Oh? Are you asking about backs for the Hy6? If so, Phase has been pretty mum. Thee have been rumors and interest, but no real progress to my knowledge. We're all hoping... but so far, just waiting.

[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=197210\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
There has been some real progress at Phase One, even since this thread started. Phase One has launched a close collaboration with Mamiya, producing new backs for Mamiya 645AFD family bodies, and rebranding the new Mamiya 645 body and at least one lens as Phase One products. I would surmise from facts like this that Phase One aims to build a near monopoly as supplier of fully integrated backs for the Mamiya-based 645 format product line, and is not interested in being one of three back suppliers for the Rollei-based 6x6 format Hy6 system.

Others may predict otherwise based on internet forum speculations or invoking the dogma of an inevitable eventual move to larger formats like the higher (but no wider) 6x6 format, but I have not seen any verifiable facts to support such predictions, any many pointing in a different direction, including many comments from Sinar's Thierry.
