  • Excerpt: I have recently acquired the 645D along with the 45-85 and 80-160 zooms and a 150mm prime.  I am used to using a Contax 645, Mamiya RZ67 and Hasselblad H1D - each using the Hasselblad Ixpress 528C back; my decision to buy the Pentax was to eliminate the need to carry the Imacon back with its...

Good but limited

A Reader "snailgate", Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: OK, full disclosure. I have not purchased this camera. main reason: limited availability of lens's in the USA. I want a super sharp 100mm lens, a good autofocus zoom to 300mm,and something to 500 or 1000mm. Not interested in a 50 or an 80. As for the camera, why no image stabilization?

  • Excerpt: Back in the late 80s I seriously started to pursue landscape photography. I had been impressed with large fine art gallery prints that caught my eye and I wanted to be able to create those same types of images for myself. After six months with 35mm I knew it was a dead end for me.
