I'll probably get shot for this. But before getting the k-7 I always thought of Pentax as landscape photographer's brand because of the most excellent medium format cameras they had.

I think Pentax can offer better camera for 8000-9000 USD
With lenses that have the rumored Maglev AF motor.

just speculating,
but would such a beast be able to shoot video?
would pentax want to implement that? would people want it more or less because of it?
if so, could it do 2k res? perhaps 4k?

The crazy idea - 645D will be with new unknown CMOS sensor with fps higher than 2 fps and with low noise till ISO1600.

There is the rumor of the Kodak KAF39000 39mp ccd.

Pentax 645D may be getting this sensor from Kodak | Photo Rumors

Specs on the KAF39000

http://www.kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/business/ISS/productsummary/F...uctSummary.pdf

PhotoRumors was also speculating $6500 street price. If it hits at that price, this fukktard want be laughing anymore. I guess it is called softpedia because he is soft in the head.

Edit: If it is this sensor, that puts the active area at 49 x 36.8 and a diagonal of 61.8.

Softpedia is a Romanian site. But the problem is the author, Florin Panaitescu, who knows next to nothing about Pentax and hate them with passion. I don't understand why they let him write Pentax articles.

LOL. I think you're dreaming...on the front page of DPR today, the latest ultra high speed Leaf digital back was released....and it's a whopping 1.25 FPS

Just accept that it's for studio and landscape shooters...I'm both so I'm hoping some well heeled sports shooters buy it and find that it's too slow for them and dump it at crazy prices

Sorry I meant Kodak of course (hard to write on a smartphone ).
The current Kodak CCD sensors (MF size) do not go faster than 1-1.5 fps.
I don't see the possibility of Video with such specs.

How big is the sensor of the 645D?

Maybe Pentax brings it with a "small" sensor for a MF camera? 30 milion pixels on a 30x45 mm sensor. That makes it possible to give it a relatively small and compact body for a MF camera.
