I own both cameras and have owned the 645d since 2011 and I have close to a month of experience with the Z. Now that I've settled down with the Z i decided to do a writeup between the D and the Z. Here you can read on blogpost and let me know what you think.

Comparing Pentax 645D and 645Z – Part I | AL CARLAY
Thank you for taking the time to do the comparison. It is appreciated very much. I guess the debate for 645 vs. Nikon D800 or the Sony A7R will go on for sometimes. The 645Z is clearly the winner in the resolution department and even perhaps low light and dynamic range race.

The question for me is ROI. If I could make a job or assignment pay for it, I would not hesitate for one second to get the 645Z. But if I had to pay for it out of personal funds and not commercial use, I have to look at cheaper alternative.

For now, I am totally happy with my K3. I ran into Kerrick James at CES at the beginning of the year. He referred to the K3 as a baby 645. Of course the 645Z was behind a window at the show and not a real product at that time. He was referring to the 645D which he has.

I am curious to see from the people who own the two cameras, as to how they feel about the 645Z vs. K3.

My last Pentax crop-DSLR was k20d, and nowadays I'm not the owner of both 645D and 645Z cameras, but after comparing them for nearly two weeks - I want to buy K-3 in addition to my 645D
