Sub-forum name?

Maybe it has already been discussed but why is this sub-forum still called "Pentax 645D and Medium Format"?

Well, the 645Z does count as Medium Format, doesn't it?
It was worse when K-01 lenses had to appear in the "Pentax SLR lens discussion" sub-forum.

Why not just call the forum "Pentax Medium Format"? Have a sub forum for digital and a sub forum for film.
Because that probably would make sense, for me I have zero interest in digital cameras. So having MF Film forum would be fantastic.

Well, we almost have what you are looking for (MF film forum). It is Pentax 67 system only at this point.
Heavy Pentax - for 6X7 format users - PentaxForums.com

I want a 67 in the future, but at this point I only have a hasselblad.

I just visited there ...and nothing is happening. This 645D medium format sub-forum is not a specific pointer to MF, especially analogue. There does need to be better differentiation e.g. a new name "Medium Format Pentax 645, 67, 67ii" etc.

It's just a simple matter of someone starting a new thread. The current one started by Nester was film because there was no MFD at the time. And when the 645D came out the title was changed.

I don't mind digital and film together. A good image is a good image no matter what the medium but I'm sure there are still some old-school thinkers around that think what camera took the picture is more important than the image itself.

That's true, but there is a sudden rush of "test" images lately. The drop in quality is why I stopped checking the photo thread and get my photo fix in different places.
