I have a Stowa Flieger incoming, it’s the Type B dial with ETA 2801 manual hackable movement and display back. Estimated delivery is mid-May, that’s a 5-month wait! At the official Stowa forum, someone started a thread called See a Stowa in Real Life before you buy – thread for details of people willing to show their Stowas. A couple of PMs later I found myself having drinks with 2 SF members. I also got to see almost the exact watch I ordered, got to tried it on and everything, it’s an amazing watch, and it’s relatively inexpensive compared to most other brands with an advertising budget, I can’t wait to get it.
A couple of snapshots of the No. 09/33 FOLE:
These were shot at high ISO and handheld, a lot of them were at unsafe shutter speed. The crazy image stabilization on the 100L is really amazing.
My biggest gripe about the 5D2 is the AF pattern, looks like they’ve fixed that in the best possible way, the GPS accessory is also nice, too bad it’s an attachment and not built into the body. Most likely I’ll be getting an 5D3. I’m not shooting professionally anymore, and I’m actually really happy with the 5D2, so not in a huge hurry to upgrade. (That said, I’ll probably jump on Amazon pre-order as soon as that’s available, pretty easy to pick up a freelance photo gig to pay for the upgrade. 🙂 )
