Filson makes great stuff indeed. But what this all adds up to is the Tenba Roadie (rolling backpack) I’ve been using for my S system for extensive travel the past two years. Granted the Tenba doesn’t break down to a shoulder bag, but it carries my S system and 15″ MacBook Pro quite compactly with room for my M and a few lenses.
I’m very glad it worked out. I’m sure that was a huge sigh of relief. I haven’t had that scenario with my S or previous S2 since I rarely shoot to cards – only tethered, but it’s a good thing you found a solution. I’ve had that pit-in-the-stomach feeling once or twice and it’s not been a pleasant thing. It’s good to know there’s this…[Read more]
Actually, since I’m not likely to be an early adopter paying a commensurate price for whatever is announced, and seeing that I love the look of the current S2 ccd with the S offering refinements plus somewhat enhanced performance, and then add the 3 year hot swap warranty, the offer does have attraction, for a working pro.
It’s been a workhorse for me these last 9 months. Paid for itself many times over. Exceptional performing zoom, easily the best I’ve ever worked with. Paired with a 24, it covers just about everything for me.

You were obviously shooting flash too, so it appears to be a systemic problem, not just with my unit.

Since all I shoot is arch (with quite a bit of interior work), I shoot in the wide range more than the long, and I’m mainly preoccupied with watching for distortion at the edges. The profile(s) in LR5 do the same job as those I’ve used with Phocus. I’ve seen no indication of a poor profile – no barrel, pincushion or mustache distortion apparent…[Read more]

This is a late response, but here it is FWIW.
I’m a digital Hasselblad users for many,…[Read more]
You might give the Hasselblad HTS a try. Granted it would make your 24mm a 36mm, but you’d be able to maintain a rectilinear image over three merged shots. I use it regularly with my S2 and unlike my H body, it allows (most of the time, for me at least) auto focus to work as well.
Thanks for sending. Yes, I see it’s in the DNG as-is. I’m still puzzled by the apparent density change center-to-edge in the sky, almost a reverse of what I’d expect on an uncorrected shot with a 24. Could be atmospheric, I suppose, but just looks odd to me. Have you tried any other shots that include an known evenly lit background?
