I like Leaf products., just not the less-than-wise decisions made by Leaf, but many companies fall under that. Information on the web is becoming a joke, because it's searchable, always there, we take it for granted, we learn from it, we give it to other people, and it only requires one person somewhere, somehow to pull the plug on worthwhile information that will never again be accessible. (not directed to you per se)
Now for every person who buys an older Leaf back, you have eliminated a 24hr Q&A area which Leaf and dealers will have to spend more time re-answering the same questions about every legacy product. Lost information, lost time.
yes, that would be me who just picked up a Valeo 11 and 17wi for our school.... to add to our ancient (in digital time) Valeo 6. At least I know something about leaf capture software, but I'm now interested in the live view feature, dongle, and pros/cons of either back and the different digital lenses I might be able use from earlier generations. I realize the busy professionals might have some time to answer questions here, but I'd prefer to ask intelligent questions... it gets me closer to good replies. A real bummer(x2).
