Basically they shoot brick walls. So "must read" is - well, how to put it - slightly overstated, IMHO. It is an interesting read nonetheless. Pentax 645D is a mighty fine camera.

I saw this yesterday on the 1001noisy site. It is an excellent read. I particularly like the comparison to the Canon 1D.

This article clearly adds credence and reason to the reports that I've heard of Canon 1DsMkIII shooters switching to the 645D.

I shouldn't be but i was most surprised by the Leica. i knew the 645d would be this good. I'd heard enough nitpicking on the leica to be surprised (my only nitpicking with any leica gear is the price)
Not being a Canon fan I wasn't as surprised (if I had to choose between the 2 it would be Nikon not Canon)

Regarding the Canon 1DsMkIII, wasn't this more a test of the 24-105mm lens than of the camera body? Had I wanted to bring out the best in the Canon (knowing it would be compared to medium format digital), I would have selected the 24-70mm or 70-200mm f/4 IS or f2.8 II.
