I have a Pentax 645Z on the way.

Couldn't pass up the Australian 645Z offered in the photo market place. I wasn't planning on buying a 645Z this month. Especially after buying the Pentax 60-250 zoom for the K-1 last week.
Anyway the 645Z is on the way with the A 120 macro.

I've missed medium format. The poor Pentax 6x7 rarely leave the house anymore. Living in the boonies makes it difficult to get 120 film and developing. Hoping the 645Z can rekindle the flame.

Thanks,
barondla

Good luck with that lovely camera. Looking forward to seeing some pix from your " rekindled flame."

I've often thought about trying a 645Z but when I think about it a bit more deeply I can't think of any time that I would use it.

Lucky you. Due to the lack of 645z in my home, I've been working on my stitching technique , which I have to say looks more like a pain in the neck.

What camera/s do you shoot now? I have film cameras from Minox spy to 8x10 and digital from Pentax Q to soon 645. I usually find something to shoot. Only wish there was more time to shoot.
Thanks,

Congratulations on your new 645Z! Nothing like it for sparking creativity and picture taking. The 120mm is a wonderful lens.

A couple of KP's and a K30. Apart from not being able to think of an (honestly) legitimate use for getting a 645Z, I'm on a self-imposed gear buying moratorium for 2020 (that's not to say that I haven't been sorely tempted several times already!!)

Congrats, unless I have a particular project in mind, my 67 gets little use since I got a D - I use it more it than the K-1.
