Hans,

There would be a lengthy delay no matter which way you go.

Refer to Chris (Omaroo)'s tale.

You know, you could have saved yourself a lot of time and dollars if you weren't already addicted to top of the line DSLR full format sensors Humayun!

Seriously, I'm looking forward to what you may be putting out over the next 12 months like everyone else with your purchase to be.

Rob,

lol, you're 100% right.

In my defence I do use the 35mm frame for weddings and landscapes. That is to say, I do make use of my equipment.

I have been going to bed having pleasant dreams about what I may be able to do with the camera.

Astrophotography is such an obsessive... obsession!

Oh yeah, my 1st rig Items a few years back (LX200r,St8,G11) ALL took 6 mths each to arrive, an insane wait. Unless it's in stock, it's lottery, but in time you forget that. The wrong choice you don't forget.
