It is simply an amazing camera. For my needs I think I need the kidney more than this camera.

I cant decide if that camera's photograph on the webstore page looks more like a platypus or a duck?

Wow, I wonder if that price is body only, lolol.


I can't wait to see the photos some pro photographers can get out of that thing.

Actually, the announcement was on Sept. 21, at Photokina. At that time, they announced that the 645D, which had only been available in Japan, would be available worldwide.

Yes, the $10k price is for the body only. If you scroll down, you will see the new 55mm lens for $1200. It also can use any 645 film lenses.

Finally! But I was not happy with the statement by Pentax USA that the camera will be available in very limited quantity and that the statementit is not a selling ploy.
Precedence will be given to pre-order customers, ok, but what does that mean for everybody else? Will there be long periods in between supplies?
Certainly the statement was accurate but left wondering those who are not willing to put up money months in advance or paying a premium.
