They should start with Leica the obvious primo choice as they have redefined
the universe as we know it and have taken over. I think the most important
end in making digital explode was the printing end. THOSE kinds of results
cant be argued with. Epson did that with their early printers.
Saying "yes it will look fine in the halftone or on your monitor" is a weak
argument, market wise. I think. As I'm a market expert. I go to the A&P
daily. And my name is "Mark". Making it a genetic thing.
