Hello, I was wandering :?: , why there are no reviews with other cameras than Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Sony etc.. For example I would be very interested :idea: how a Mamiya 645ZDb (for example) will stand against a Canon 5D MarII or Nikon D3X. I know this site is not designed for professional cameras but just for fun I believe a test like this would be interesting and kind of unique. :D
By the way.. what do you know, or think about Mamiya cameras?

Best regards :wink:

Hi arisanu,

I think you've hit the nail on the head in your remark about professional cameras. You'll notice that the Canon 1-series models aren't reviewed either. And supposing that Mamiya did offer Gordon the loan of a review camera that would mean time spent reviewing a model that virtually nobody here would buy and, conversely, time not available to produce reviews of more direct use.

But I certainly agree that there's something très sexy about those medium format cameras when fitted with digital backs. 8)
