My dear fellows,
Here's my public answers on cinematography.com, first off:
And the email sent to Mr. Gregory Mirand four hours ago (no reply so far) -- I just didn't call him 'cause tonight it would be too late, even for his own cellular phone. Where I could introduce a copy of the message received tonight from this sender that I had the unpleasure of meeting :) plus a copy of the reply that I sent to him five hours ago. Tracking message received so, he could read it but didn't reply. Instead, he decided to come here and post it.
Here's the email sent to Gregory Mirand, then (only my text):
I'm upset with all this. What exactly does it mean?
[text of the message received from Anthony Edward that I'd prefer to omit 'cause I'm not used to make public private email (from others) unless my own, of course]

As matter of fact, I had asked to Gregory if I would have his permission in order to post his information on the RED boards. Only by error, there was another open thread (first opened) on a different section (35mm). I'm not sure if Gregory had realized that cinematography.com had a RED section but it actually has.
ALL this information was detailed by myself up to the last detail. Including the Zeiss quality quote. They're not my words and I was very explicit in order to know what I could write or not. I'm used to deal with media v.g. newspapers. And in life, I already had to stand corrected press interviews, after previous wrong quotes, distorting my own words on front page.
As I said, 'cause I wouldn't like to read any further complaint from others or inaccurate information. Succeeding the Gregory's approval.
I'm very cautelous with the information that I share with anyone. When I'm informing someone, I'm used to quote my sources under their own awareness. Or I don't quote no one else at all.
You can expect loyalty from myself but you can't expect anything else from yourselves towards to myself for this or any other matter.
Of course, you have no clue or idea with who you're talking about. But I can assure you that, as former producer with work awarded in Venice, National TV producer, etc etc, I'm used to be the man in charge regarding my own business/activity. And I'm used to be very accurate, first off with me. Exactly in order to demand from others the same treatment, for sure.
I've exposed my name in your behalf under Gregory's agreement and surveillance. My name has the value of a full CV of several years of work in the past, now in the present, tomorrow in the future. The people with who I am in contact with, they know that can have absolute confidence on me. They're used to put questions. And I'm used to answer them.
Of course, I'll completely refrain from posting any future information regarding the Optar Illumina lenses without asking you first and/or under your permission. As always. Whenever the name of your brand was quoted. But I will never refrain to answer the questions from those whom have the above-mentioned confidence on my information. As well, I will never refrain to post my own opinions about all that I think that should be mentioned by my person. That's all, I believe.
You're welcome and warm regards,
All this happened after and when I had meticulously laid permission as to what I could and could not say.
