    They're going to put a bottom plate on the new monorails.

    Does it really matter, Sinar is a quality camera, leica is a quality camera, I suspect they will both continue to be a quality camera, the owner of the company really don't matter.

    You'll have to trim your sheet film a little before loading it?

    People on the internet will argue over whether it should only be used with a red dot Artar, or be discretely engraved with script on the top plate?

    Special edition view cameras with ostrich bellows and gold plating?

    hopefully, my Sinar won't begin to smell like a cigar.
