I totally agree with your opinions.
and your attitude you are doing business. you are right
if you are saying that the customer doesnt care and wouldnt even recognize any
difference we are talking about.
BUT actually I for me do care...
I loved my large format camera and my super angulon XL 58, 90mm and the 120mm
and the quality they delivered. the change from analog to digital 7years ago was not very easy
to me because of weakness of bodies, wideangle lenses, ...
I do interieur photography too and I cant serve my customers any distorted picture!!
some of my customers are even used to get MF-photographs, thats why I cant make a compromise, for example
use crop-cameras, zoomlenses,..
since the TSe24II and TSe17 came out Im quite confident and almost very happy with my gear because
of their excellent quality!
Everytime I use my 17er Im amazed about its capabilities!
and the 24II is even superior.
thats why Im searching a perfect and suitable 35mm!
for your pro example: Annie Leibovitz.
i saw a video (15years ago) where her assistants were loading her filmbacks of her RZ67. and there were about
25 filmbacks on the table!!! at least 25?!? if you need 4 its much...
not to say anything about the light she was using for that shooting.
