Thinking on getting a 645z

Hi my name is Brad I am new to this forum. I used to shoot with a Canon 5DII. I had all L lenses. Sold it all and I ma looking for something new. I am wondering if any one has used this camera as ther only one? Using the HDR mode using it for night Astro shots. What lenses are you using?
Thanks
Brad

Are you only planning to shoot the stars with the 645Z? If so, it would certainly deliver great image quality and you could get away with using it as your only body. Just keep in mind that medium format is a lot heavier than full frame, so you'll want to plan to accessorize accordingly.

Welcome aboard!!

If you get the 645Z a lot of us here are going to be very jealous. It is an excellent camera.

Welcome to the forum. There aren't lot of 645 shots here, but there are a few.
