Pentax 645D review part 1

Both parts 1 and 2 of my Pentax 645D review are now online.

See Pentax 645D review



Part 1 has some 5Dmk2 vs 645D comparison shots.


Part 2, has the field test "From Blizzard to Desert"


At the end of part 2 there is a link to a 645D vs D3x test shot...





All input is welcome.


Enjoy..

Excellent "Read", informative and posted examples and files are well done! Another fine example fo what the 645D is capable of when in the "right" hands! Thanks for posting this.

Very nice review. One thing though "The Pentax 645D is billed as completely dust and weather sealed."

Is that true for the 645D? Generally all Pentax gear is WR, meaning "weather resistant," not weather proof and completely sealed...

Edit: The other thing is that you could have easily gone out of commission with that 45-85mm in your example because i assume it doesn't have sealing. The connection between the lens and camera without a seal for one.

Yep, but I didn't happen.

A tightly fitting, highly polished metal surface, while not as good a weather seal can keep out quite a bit of moisture

Sure, but I bet you'd feel even better with a weather sealed lens on the body I've taken my K20D and 18-55mm WR through medium level white water rafting...I was soaking wet pretty quickly but the camera kept taking pictures through the whole ordeal and to this day.

I would indeed be very happy if someone would make glue on weatherproof seals for all my existing 645 glass.

I think you could make a bunch of money if you could come out with such a produce. I'd be first in line.
