David Saffir recently took the Mamiya 645AFD III for a spin, and has been blogging about it. If you’re unfamiliar with Saffir, he’s a top shooter and regularly holds Photoshop and book publishing workshops for photographers. In this blog post, he gives a solid once-over review of the 654AFD III and the Leaf Aptus DL-28 Digital Back, the immediate predecessor to the new DM28. This is the same rig he’ll be using on his Focus 2009 Tour and Seminar Series, Fine Art and Photographic Reproduction.
Saffir gives good marks for ergonomics, quality, and shooting in lighting-controlled situations. He promised more review details in future posts. Check it out, and follow this Top 100 blogger on Twitter.
