That's a bit like a Nikon man commenting about a Canon, or a Pentax and highly biased.

I looked carefully at the Fotoman's and any quality differences are not easily discernible. It's the results that the cameras produce that's important, and that ultimately is far more dependent on the lens quality than anything else. It would be equally as easy to argue that a Fotoman or a Gaoersi doesn't have the build quality of a Linhof or a Fuji but both are capable of being used to make exactly the same quality of images.

There's nothing wrong with Fotoman cameras, but the Gaoersi is a good cost effective alternative.
