    I got to play with it in Japan and Australia,
    The weight was surprising (light),
    and the photos....
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    $13.5K SGD for a digital medium format is real bargain.

    Unfortunately, the widest lens available for this system is a 25mm, which translates roughly to about 20mm in 35mm terms. Its not wide enough. If there are wider lenses coming, I'll get it.

    Too committed to my Mamiya 645AFDII system already. If I'm starting out fresh, I would definitely grab the Pentax 645D instead!

    Anyone knows if Mamiya 645 lenses can be used on a Pentax 645D?

    The mighty Pentax flagship has finally landed on our shores.

    Can't wait for some pics from local pros with this camera.

    Played with it in Japan too ! Really light for such a big camera

    Only thing that there was abit of shutter lag ,due to the huge mirror it has to swing up first

    Btw i thought MF focal length was divied by 2 ? So 50mm =25mm ?
    Buy Film Not Megapixels

    About 1.5x, 85mm on MF, approx 50mm on 35mm film format.
    The 645D is a cropped MF sensor, so not too sure on the crop factor

    645D sensor is approx 1.3x crop compared to a conventional 645 film camera.

    Amoung the above lenses, these are the good ones:

    FA645 ZOOM 33-55MM F4.5AL
    FA645 35MM F3.5AL(IF)
    FA*645 300MM F4 ED(IF)
    FA645 MACRO 120MM F4

    The FA75/2.8 is cheap and ok too, but I guess most 645N/645NII film body owners already have it. If prices are right, the above lenses should be easy to sell (not to me though, can't afford )

    Hmmm..... this is missing from the list?
    http://www.dpreview.com/news/1102/11...ax645d25mm.asp

    That should the widest available for 645D till date? Even with that, its equivalent to about 20mm. Wishing for something which offers at least 17mm. That would be great for interior works. Nicer if there are a couple of T/S lenses in the system.

    Not that I will invest in one anytime soon (or ever) but what is the crop factor for the 645D as compared to 35mm format? Kind of hard to visualize the focal lengths.

    *edit ok so according to Kit's figures for the 25mm, its a x0.8 crop to convert to 35mm?

    33-55mm = 27.5-44mm
    35mm = 28mm
    300mm = 240mm
    120mm = 96mm

    correct?

    According to dpreview, the 25mm converts to 19.5mm in 35mm terms, so its 0.78x.
