    I got to try this out on loan from someone who is trying to sell it. It's really not as bad as some of the reviews I read. I would say it focuses as fast as the Quattro in most circumstances, maybe a bit faster with some lenses. I got a 70mm F2.8 with it. I really hard a hard focusing that lens on the Quattro. It was pretty snappy on the Merrill. It's exceedingly well built like the Quattro. It has the quietest mirror box I've ever heard.

    Irrespective of the camera, you do find the most interesting things to shoot. Hog taxidermy...how have I lived nearly 60 years without having a stuffed hog?

    The Merrill's are great cameras, much cheaper than the quattros, and sometimes better quality. I'd snap it up if I were you.

    PS Still waiting - five weeks now - for the Fotodiox lens adapter. Apparently it has reached the UK from the US. Soon, I hope.
