Now charging the battery and reading the manual. It's almost 11:00PM here and am too tired to play... Not sure what to say about the build quality.. "borderline solid" -- in a way. Anyway -- I think I will get used to it. In any case I ordered it as a simple digital back for my macro lenses that would be capable of producing some high-quality exposures -- and it qualifies on that criteria very well. If it lasts me two years I'm happy. One thing though -- what's that loud noise everytime I trip the shutter? Can that not be turned off? Geez, I had just started rejoicing that I am finally liberated from mirror slap? I'm planning to get the Kirk PZ-130 arca-style body plate -- am curious if anyone around here uses it?
