I am excited. Anyone knows who is the local distributor?

Any experienced Pentax MF can share pointers? I posted in the MF forum but no replies. haha

One thing fake about the rumor was the video was rumored to be 4K. Thankfully its only full HD.

One of the bad thing is that it doesn't have audio out. So, its hard to monitor your video/audio recording.

Try opening the sample photo on PC or IMac of model portrait and then zoom in,
makes you want to throw away your K3 !
wait for the next k3 firmware update..maybe it will transform k3 into 645z ;)

And it's priced at $8,499.95USD only, far less than the original 645D price. At this price, I think Pentax is gonna rule all the medium format market :cool:

Go Pentax Go!
I almost fell off the chair. For manufacturers who think they can charge 4 or 5 times more for the equivalent, end is probably coming.

I have no business to need a medium format but i enjoy looking at specs of medium format digital backs and fantasize.
14 bits vs 16 bits in colour depth...

Ya man... I compared with Phase One and Hasselblad.. Specs-wise ONLY, this 645z looks like it has them all bashed up on paper..
Haha! Then again, I might be wrong as I have no experience with any of them.

To top it off, price compared, I almost fell off my chair too. LoL!
