I ventured forth yesterday with e Sinar and got defeated by the weather. But even having it, with the heavier tripod, in the back of the van prompted a switch to the Linhof last night. In practice the Linhof is a bitch but getting it to the shot is a cinch. I must be getting old or weak.
I have seen some files of the S2 Leica and they are nothing short of staggering. But as you say, Geoff, a king's ransom and then some.
