    I'm still trying to understand the whole story -- sounded like a business negotiation that started but never finalized ???

    There's a lot of ambiguity, and I have no information but what everyone can read in the forums and in _View Camera_ magazine, but in late 2006/early 2007 it appeared that Kerry Thalmann was invited to review the cameras and eventually to endorse and become a distributor in the U.S., and that he put significant effort toward the project, and after Chamonix had his endorsement he was unceremoniously cut out of the operation. From the comments in the thread I referenced, it seems that I'm not the only person who read the situation this way, and neither of the parties involved have said anything to correct or contradict this impression.

    Very, much more rigid than a Shen-Hao or Tachi...

    Controversy aside, this thing looks oh so tempting. The Linhof may have finally found its replacement.
