Hi Michael,

That is very interesting history. Peope ahead of the pack sometimes get the spoils or might get injured instead!

Sinar is now with Jenoptic and no doubt the Sinar back will be part of the the new Hy6 platform along with Leaf. These two backs for sure will provide photographers with great capabilities.

We only know for certain*, that Leaf Aptus backs will be on this new platform some 4-8months from now.

I am concerned that the back wil be designed for the Aptus and there may be a different version for Sinar. Having identical bodies would really help everyone!

Asher

(*If anything is certain, as some announcements form photokina are like promises made at a New Years Eve party and fade as the hats are discarded and the alcohol wears off!)
