Thanks Steven. I dont go above f22, but find it had a good balance between DOF and low diffraction. Sent from my iPhone
Hi Steve- thanks for your comment. The crop factor is not a huge issue for me, I will still be able to get dramatic wide angle shots with the 28mm. The limiting factor for me as a landscape photographer was the iso 50 on the H3D-39. Any slight wind would make photography very difficult outdoors at iso 50, with a noticeable decrease in image quality at higher isos with that sensor. I have found the limiting factor with my work to be having an adequate shutter speed to freeze wind motion at f22 (to preserve DOF). I have made prints up to 10 feet high with the H3D-39 and expect to be able to get the same or better quality from the H4D-40, so the increase in resolution for me was not as necessary as more functional high iso / high shutter speed option. Plus the 4 minute exposure will allow me get shots I couldnt do previously. My favorite lenses are the 28mm, 300mm, and the 50-110 zoom.

I have not really had any problems lately - I did at first with it blinking and changing profiles but recent software updates to the os seemed to have fixed this.
