Macro Shots From 645Z

As I (im)patiently wait for my Z to get shipped from B&H, I stumbled across this blog post. All shots are with a borrowed 645Z and 90mm Macro. Mouthwatering.

lovely images, based on what I've done with my 645D, the 645Z seems much better at ISO 1600, as I see very little image degradation compared to what I've experienced at 1600 with the 645D...I'm pretty picky, but with the 645D I really don't like going above ISO 800 and prefer to stay at 400 or below unless absolutely necessary. These taken with the Z at 1600 seem as clear as 800 or less as with the D.

Waiting with bated breath for mine at the weekend. Might trade in my D800 (not the e) and possibly my 645D plus two unused Canon Macro lenses to soften the blow and shield me from blows from the wife!

Got my preorder in with SRS last Friday....

@Ryan Tischer are you getting the Z now? Or eventually? Ill have your 645D then hoping it retains some of the magic you captured with it
