I actually don't find the 5DSR to be that bad. I rarely push more than 2 maybe 3 stops in the shadows on any shot.

The files from it are rich and detailed, plus it has a huge range of great glass such as the 70-200/4L IS, 70-300L IS, 16-35/4 IS, 17 and 24 TSE etc etc. all better and more lightweight offerings for the landscape photog than what Pentax are offering at this time.

Adams rendition of the 645z with the empty space inside removed. This would be a great mirrorless offering from Pentax, considering how much they love being able to utilize older lenses.

Since this thread came back to life I thought I would post an update. I've done field testing of my new K-1/24-70 f2.8 combo and am working on a review with a good comparison shot to the 645z. I like the camera overall and I think it will serve its purpose but there is no way I would give up my 645z for it! I'll post a link to my review once it is done.
