Didn't Leica also forget to include an effective IR filter in one their past cameras?
I too dislike the new forums with a vengeance. The old format was fine, why change it? I'm going to spend very much less time here and the advertisers are going to have far less chance to sell me stuff.

I use C1 v6 and v3 for 5DII and 5DI files and love both. That v6 keeps all the meta files with images is much better than v3 and Lightroom IMHO. The output files are just great, and it's easy to use. I put 100 k images pa through them so it has to be fast.
The price is still poor, now that Lightroom is so competitive.
