tarakanchik: awesome shot.
I just printed the image (40" x 60") on Canvas with a Gallery Wrap frame (Breathing Color's Lyve). I am pretty please with the result. The image changes dramatically with depending on the angle of light.
Great job. Wonderful to read such an objective review.
I had the pleasure of extensive testing of the systems you discuss, plus a few more. It appears a few people are confusing the Leaf Back (A II) with the Phase One Back (IQ 180). The difference between the two is substantial and material. I did not have the same troubles you experienced with AII with the IQ 180.
In my case (given my criteria) I chose the IQ 180 Back and both the 645D and Cambo Wide RS and suite of lens'.
