A few from my first 24 hours of 645z ownership. Loving this camera so far, but I have a lot to learn. The first is a quite severe crop with the 55 mm 2.8 'kit' lens and the other two are with the HD 28-45 zoom. It's heavy but I really like it so far.

While Im Not giving up my Canon 5D's, ( they have their purpose), Im almost exclusively using my new 645Z, These Sampels taken in the Valley of the Temple on Oahu, Honolulu are what keeps me working at it more and more. The Detail in the Buddha (particularly the Large file) is extraordinary, the small stream, and yes it was fairly small is actually two images, one without the flash, and one with the flash, all images handheld. And Yes, I kicked myself for leaving the tripod in the car. Both with the 45-85mm lense. Which to me is still not the sharpest Pentax lense I have, maybe it just needs Image Stabilization.

I shoot this mountain a fair bit, but have never seen a giant crepuscular ray pop out like this did tonight. Some crazy stuff.

A few recent ones of mine.

Glow Worms - Glow worms light up a creek bank through a coastal rainforest, Woolgoolga NSW Australia.
#2 has the cool factor...but I'd hang #1 on my wall! Lovely shot indeed.

The camera has superb high ISO with really good DR at those high ISOs. So why shoot at ISO 200 at 1/8th of a second for that foliage when you could shoot a faster shutter speed using more ISO? I think only superman can handhold a 1/8th shutter speed steady. It must have been pretty dark for an exposure of 1/8th at f5.6 and ISO 200. I shoot BW film without a light meter and the Sunny 11 rule a lot and in the shadows in daylight near sunset/sunrise I'd shoot 100 film at f5.6 1/30th for worst case.

Tuco , Thank you for review, I very much appreciate it.. as for the 1/8th shutter, I was pretty surprised myself. Thats what the camera gave while shooting in Aperture Priority. It was mostly a dark overcast day underneath a strong canopy of trees on a trail. I got down on my knees and held the camera as steady as I could while having it rest on a railing on the small bridge. This is an HDR image, (Only 2 images). the other shot was with a small on camera flash at a shutter speed of 1/50. Im posting another one here of a shot I took just prior to this one with an ISO of 6400 at F/18.
Mahalo.
