Michael Reichmann of the luminous landscape has this to say about the upcoming Pentax MF camera

Luminous landscape

I don't particularly like some Michaels photography but as far as I'm concerned, he's a good reliable source of information. And he has a good eye for Image quality, He was suitably impressed with the images printed from the Pentax Digital 645 at PIE.
I too respect Michael Reichmann - one of the few internet guys with a wider perspective on the photography business - but the aforementioned article on LL is actually written by Bernard Languillier.

I"ve always dreamed of a larger format, but never had the bucks, but I see an opportunity for pentax to leverage the installed base of 645's into a market share, and if they can drive the price down to that charged by the competition for a FF (for the body), they will be able
to get a nice premium for glass and leave the FF's sitting in the dust.

I've got an investor that is going to drop a nice some of money on me in June. Unfortunately, I need to spend a great chunk of that money on marketing, and get a couple of K7's with some other gear.

The 645D's are going to come later.

I was shooting on a 5D at a wedding today with the 85L (1.2 lens). It's that shallow DOF that I want coupled with the DR

I'm so down to get one or two....SO DOWN

He's less a photographer and more of a printer with specific knowledge of high resolution, and large format production, and the how that merges with digital methods.

I've been to his T.O. studio. Large print jobs are his bread and butter and he's world class at it.

I want a 645D, partly because it's Pentax, but primarilly because I can't afford it.

I've requested a 645D from Pentax Europe. If they give it to me, I'll take it...

definately getting one.

Definitely going to get one. I love Pentax lens quality. I'm going to need to upgrade from the K7 to a medium format sooner or later, 40megapixle medium format for less than 10k is a steal.

Hopefully by August it'll be available to the US market...

Ben, I think I am going to request a 645D from Pentax USA. I am sure that they won't give it to me though.

I was under the impression that all members of Pentax Forums are privy to free Pentax gear...

I would like to have one. But then I think of the insane low payment for photography and rethink. I just can`t justify the cost.

I'm going to buy one

- but I just have to finish my win-the-lottery-project first

(More seriously, if this system survives, and I think it does, I'm pretty sure prices will be low enough for a lot of us a few years into the future)
