Subject: [Leica] The final gasp of MF film?

I have been scanning my Hasselblad negs from years ago (about 7000 pixels sq 
and 280MB files). Doing the B&W looks good but the colour transparency does 
not look much different to M9. The odd thing is (most of these were SWC/M, 
50mm and 150mm black T*) that they did not look much different when I 
printed them but once scanned the SWC/M stuff is way sharper...


I'm noticing a lot of Mamiya 6 and &/7II have been come onto the market in
the last few weeks. Usually there's one or two being advertised about once
every month, but now it seems that one every few days.

My guess is that the lure of the digital and the improvement in quality is
finally convincing people to let them go...
