Hello from new french member

Hello Pentax Forums members,

Although I have been visiting a lot this forum, even before purchasing a 645Z (official order in june 2014 ), I had not yet jumped in to become a member. Now it is done !

I have started digital photography in 2012, with a Nikon D4 (I wanted a full-frame, never having used anything else than film 24x36 before). I expanded my Nikon gear, then I chose a Ricoh GR (APS-C one) as a compact camera to always have with me. This is how I discovered the clever solutions of Ricoh / Pentax. Then I heard about the 645D, but I was not sure that CCD performances would suit me. Then the 645Z was rumored, and I started to think... I had the opportunity to try one before official release at a retailer, and that was instant love. So the 645Z made me enter the Pentax world, and I am still in love. My other (excellent) cameras are collecting dust since.

I am so pleased by Pentax way of designing cameras (global performances, including weather sealing ; user interface ; specific features not seen elsewhere) that I always have a look at other Pentax products, even if I don't really need more camera gear. And I still need to add a few more lenses to my 645 system, this is why I will need feedback from this valuable community !

Thanks everybody !

Welcome from Chicago!

The 645 series is certainly impressive.
