Ouch, 5 figure for it. Better start saving for it. Hopefully not more than 12000 dollars

Thankfully the have shaved out the protruding pentaprism of the previous concepts shown at Photokina and before. That would allow the use of a shift adapter for 67 lenses... If they only would do the same for APS digital cameras...

There were pictures of the 645D posted each time in the last and previous PMA and Photokina, Japan Expo and PMA and Japan Expo and PHotokina.

So, I regard those pics for a vaporware of which the specs are not yet finalised (and always changing, for the appearance as well) , are, actually meaningless.

hmmm.. kinda makes my k100 seem a bit micky mouse.. he he

but micky mouse land is where my destiny lies i think.. i will just have have to learn to sqeak a bit louder..

or stop drooling over things i aint ever gonna have..

course in the UK that would probably be five figure pounds not half price dollars which makes it even more out of my league..

and thats before u add in all the glass it would need to be of much use for anything other than nice landscapes.. hmmm..

Yep, this has been vaporware for years now... I'll believe it when they hand me a working production copy at PMA, not just a "preproduction mockup" under glass in the booth....

If I do get my hands on one out there, I'll try to grab some pix of it to post!
