645Z first thoughts

Hi all,

I picked up my 645z this afternoon and have had only a brief play with it and have the following comments.

1. In the menu, you can now choose "100%" as a zoom-to option for image playback. Excellent feature and works great.

2. The shutter seems much more damped than the D. I ran them side by side and it is much smoother with less vibration within the body. This bodes well for the 300mm FA that I have coming.

3. Live view is gorgeous and clear. Zooming in is very nice and not muddy like the D800 is.

4. Operation is fast and image review is much quicker and more fluid. I would say approx 1-1.5 sec for image review after shooting.

That's all for now. I will report back when I get more time.

No 1 was possible with the D also. It is a good idea as very useful for checking critical sharpness.
