    Seems pretty extreme, and more opinion. But I am far from an expert and do not have the vast experience of so many on this board. What do you, the community @ large think?

    Opinions are like noses, everyone has one and they all have a couple of holes in them.

    Isn't that the key message Sanjin has had all along? The Leica's seem to be a religious experience (for some).

    Well, it sounds like's trying to "take the edge off HD"... meaning he wants to soften the image to avoid aliasing? Such matters do not apply to Epic.

    Master Prime is dogshit? Lolz.

    Seems like what I got. He doesn't want contrast, he wants softness. That contradicts the idea of HD in most situations.

    But as was said.... opinion/noses:)

    I LOL'd at this post on Twitter by Matt Dulos a couple minutes ago:

    I took Shane's advice. If anyone wants a slew of top shelf Zeiss optics, check the dumpster outside Duclos Lenses.

    Wondering if Shulbert actually refer to the Van Diems rebarrels or the new ones?
