Re: Purchased the Pentax 645n


Just wanted to introduce myself on the site. I have been a long admirer of Pentax systems and figured I'd take the plunge and get a 645n with the 75mm lens. I live up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and love shooting portraits and landscapes!

I cannot wait to start taking pictures! After lurking around here and reading what others have said, I am excited about this system very much. Thanks to everyone for their posts of information about this camera.

Now I just have to pick up the 35mm lens for her!!

Congrats Ryan! I'm a recent convert myself in Vancouver, B.C. Just bought a 120 Macro and a 2x magnifier attachment off a guy locally who has a 645D. According to the local Pentax rep they have sold ten 645D's in Vancouver so far......

Hey Eric,

Nice to hear from you. I just got mine from KEH. Its a 645n that came with the 75mm, back, covers and it is in fantastic condition. It was rated as EX but i think that that was a conservative rating because its in like new condition. I love the camera...the feel of it is fantastic. I cannot wait to start taking some pics with it. Hopefully this weekend. you'll have to let me know how yours turns out. I am looking to get the 35mm lens for landscapes but am going to have to wait a couple of months...funds of course. I have heard fantastic things about the 120 macro for the camera.

Yes, the 120 Macro is definitely a keeper - although a bit heavy. Must use a tripod due to the very shallow depth of field. I'm thinking of getting a LED ring light for it too.

So far I have: 35, 55, 75 FA, 120 Macro, and 150. Also the 2x magnifier and the right angle finder. However, I just bought a Hartblei 45mm tilt-shift - waiting for that to show up!
