The 90 is definitely the most realized lens for the system. I continue to hold on to hope that Ricoh put that R&D into a new or updated lens for the portfolio. Having shot with the GFX, I find there is marginal image difference.
Please elaborate!

pricing point is not very approachable.
The whole system isn't approachable from a price point perspective

You are right, but when I go out with the Z-90mm combination, I know that I can't blame my bad photos on the equipment, plus it is water resistant so I don't worry about the rain.

I think I slightly underdeveloped this roll, this one came out pretty well.

Pentax 67, SMC Takumar 150/2.8, Fomapan 200 developed in Xtol. This shot also included an orange filter.

Here is an image of the female flower (group) of Catasetum "Dragonstooth" taken with the 645Z and FA 120-mm macro lens. Details are in the exif file.

It is notable that the male flowers vaguely resemble snap dragon flowers, but actually snap; an entering insect's back or an observer's finger will have a packet of pollen forcibly attached to it.

The image here is derived from the 645Z jpeg image. (The displayed image resolution is lower than the original by a factor of about 6.9 x 6.9.) The counterpart .pef file was readable by Darktable, but Darktable complained that it "failed to read camera white balance from" the file. Thus it wouldn't generate a brightness spectrum. Another investigation TBD.

Post processing by Darktable was limited to pulling in the white edge a bit and turning on the Pentax curve. Darktable may do other things on its own that I don't know about yet. I expect using it to be a real discovery process.
