I have only recently started purchasing some of this series.The biggest negative that I have seen is the format of the books. The shifting of font size and oversize pages seem pointless.There may be some reason for it but it appears to be only for the sake of being different.
Which reminds me of a question about one of the volumes I have.
Jeremy, who do you think I should contact about an error in the print of a book? the publisher? the vendor who sold it to me?
It is a little off topic but I thought you may have had a similar experience.BTW it is the Sermon on the Mount Hermeneia commentary that has the bad print. Thanks

Is it something like a typo, or is it something major like the wrong pages in the wrong place? In general, the publisher is the only one who can do anything about these, but I'm not sure who at the publisher is the best person to talk to.

I think the reason for the oversize pages is that it's easier to keep the book open flat without holding it. I'm not sure what you mean about fonts, but maybe it's just different fonts for different things within the commentary. I'm not especially fond of the format of this series, but it's quite a bit better than some of the other academic series out there, especially WBC but also to some extent NIGTC, both of which run put of what would be in footnotes right in the middle of the text, needlessly cluttering it and making it harder to read.

the print is blurry as if it was double printed or something. It is like that only on certain pages. The size of the letters in the text is what I was talking about before, with sometimes 3 different sizes occuring on one page. I know that most books use this for footnotes but this commentary uses it for nearly all forms of reference all through. Which is distracting if you are trying to read through.

I picked up Shalom Paul on Amos and Conzelmann on 1 Corinthians - both at a bargain price. I find it interesting that they replaced Wolff on Amos after only 12 years. ;)

Actually, they didn't replace Wolff. Both volumes are in print. They're doing the same thing with the forthcoming Joel one. This series seems fine with having multiple volumes on the same book. I'm pretty sure it was only 11 years since the translation anyway. The original Wolff commentary was older. Most of this series is just translations of commentaries originally written in German or French.
