Der Release in Japan wurde verschoben vom 20. Mai auf den 11. Juni, wohl auf Grund der hohen Vorbestellungen.
Auf einer spanischen Seite, wurde etwas von Herbst und 7000 Euro geschrieben.
In den nchsten Tagen wird bei akihabaranews ein Hands-On erscheinen. Die haben seit ein paar Tagen eine 645D. [In Da House] Pentax 645D Medium Format Akihabara News
So bald die Kamera in Japan erschienen ist, solltet ihr mal auf den Blog von Chris Willson vorbei schauen. Der fotografiert im Moment mit einer Pentax 67 und hat schon seine 645D bestellt. Da er auf Okinawa lebt, sollte er sie Mitte Juni haben. Er will ber seine Erfahrungen dann auf dem Blog berichten. Chris Willson's Blog

Just type [ lang = de ] before the text (without the spaces) and then close with [ / lang ]!

It is released. I saw it today @Bic Camera at Shinjyuku, Tokyo. None in stock though. Those who pre ordered it were able to pick them up today, the sale person said. If you want one, the wait is about 30 days. Also, there is no international warranty offered for 645D at the moment. No release date is set for overseas.

I played with it too. Not as big and heavy as I thought. Ergonomics just like K-7. If you got K-7, you will navigate the moment you take it out of the box. Batteries are the same as that of K-7, and 645D will take about 800 pics. The shutter sound reminded me of K10D, not K-7. The viewfinder is awesome. Just huge.

You guys will be blown away. It is awesome. You can just crop your heart out without ever becoming grainy. What I noticed the most was AF. Very very fast and reliable. They are definitely catching up to Canon.

I want one very badly.

Do you have any old FA lenses?

Можете оставить свои впечатления о камере как фотограф на пента-клубе?

old FA

A friend of mine have 6 FA lenses, I can use them all...
конечно, проблема в том, когда подвернётся шанс быстрее передать камеру в Москву
