An impressive camera and lens, and for the price they go for, they'd have to be.
They do pose a good competition to existing MF setups. But realistically, their application is somewhat limited compared to the more compact dSLRs - just by virtue of their physical size and weight. I wouldn't be taking it out on many landscape shoots if I had a dMF and dSLR camera to choose from...

Couldn't you argue that your dSLR is huge, heavy and bulky compared to a point-n-shoot? Why carry around that big thing when you could have something that fits in your pocket? The 645D is not that big. It's all relative to what you are use to hauling around.

Are Japanese the only language of display menu?
Nope. English is 100% there too. 645D was shown in Canada already. The next stop is France and Australia.

After carrying the 67 - make that two of them - plus lenses, pretty much anything else would be compact. One hair on your head is not enough, but one in your soup - is too much. It's all relative.

It is the same size as Canon and Nikon pro cameras. The lenses are Canon L-sized....

I've been downloading samples from the site all day. The 55mm is impressive. What really has me impressed though is the ISO1000 and 1600 images. Other than some detail loss, the images are incredibly clean in the shadows and dark areas.

Love the DOF and bokeh in the images. This is one impressive camera.
Agree on you Hi-Mark for HI-ISO. To my eyes it is best hi-ISO MF camera todate...
Time to sell my Mamiya ZD kit and start saving&!

Here's a hands-on review of this fine piece of kit by the one and only Kerrick James:

No - I've got my 645D and the default language when I opened the box was English - language selection in the menu is pretty comprehensive for changing to anything eles.
