I must say that DH had me slightly annoyed lately.
My friend tried to arrange for a review of the new 1970.* Most brands, micro or not, make one or two press/review samples, which are then passed around reviewers. Well, most. Not DH. If you want to review a DH, you have to...buy it. Can't know for sure, but if you decide to return it, it will presumably be sold on.
That's not particularly nice. It's not even that my extraordinarily brilliant and inspired review of the 1970 ranks 5th in Google search results (not counting Monochrome's featured snippet appearing ahead of actual results). We never gave a fuck about Kickstarter panhandlers who wanted us to review their junk with a raw Miyota 821 sticking out like a flasher's cock from under a crappy display back. But the microbrands comparable to DH in scale have been waaaay more caring about public relations. Seems like everyone, from Prickstarter grifters to high-end brands, care more.
I like my original 40mm 1970, and I really like the way the new ones look. However, I find DH's PR skills wanting.
*Note: not by any initiative of mine. Should I be asked to review something, I will or won't, and if I will, I will do so on my own terms; praise where it's due, walloping where it's well-deserved and much needed.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.
