New to the Pentax Forum

Just joined the group today! Great info on here! Have owned a Pentax 67 and 67ii cameras for awhile. Just recently purchased a mint but used 645d last week. I really love this camera. They have really come down in price do to the new Z coming out. I also have a Sony A900. The image difference is astounding! I bet I shot over 200 shots with my old 67 lenses this weekend. The old glass really shines on this camera! I am really amazed at the fine image detail compared to my Sony A900.

Thank you for the greetings. Up in till the last couple of years I was pretty much a solid film shooter on many medium format systems. The Pentax 67ii was an amazing break through with its matrix metering. When I found out I could now use the glass again on the 645D it seemed like a logical switch. I still have my darkroom but just don't get in it much these days. I love the Bokeh of the Pentax lenses wide open! The picture of my Bird Rusty attached is a good example.
