645D makes me happy

I just wanted to make a post to say how happy I am with the 645D. I knew if used properly could produce sharper images and more dynamic range than my canon....but I now see first hand how good it is.

I just got through browsing all of the pictures I took Yosemite with my 645D and the pictures my wife took with the 5D MKII. In some areas we took similar photos. The overall quality of the file is just simple amazing. Contrast, sharpness and Dynamic range are in a whole other class. My wifes shots were perfectly exposed but in some of the shooting conditions we had bright light on mountains and foreground in shade. On the canon it created an image that looked ok on the mountains but the foreground was just way to dark...even after trying to recover it looked bad. The detail is simple stunning at times, even at the corners.

I won't be getting rid of the 5D because I use it for many other things, and I am a huge fan of the system. Pentax has a winner here. All of my lenses used worked out great even in the corners.

Glad to hear you're happy with the camera. I find most of my lenses quite good as well. In some ways, I'll miss using the 67II as my main camera, but the quality of the 645D is very convincing.
I'll repeat: show some photos.

He's posted a number of pics. See the Ice and River, Last Snowstorm, and Half Dome at Sunset threads just to mention some of them.

Glad it worked out...I know at the start you were worried the lenses weren't up to snuff. Great pics of Yosemite 100% crops for the crazy pixel peepers? :-)

What lens did you use was it the 35 mm.
