It was just some glue from the pricing sticker that was attached to it when I bought it. I cleaned it and replaced the picture. It is in very good condition cosmetically as you can see.

You can go to Imaging Resources and compare the 645D to Sony 7R3.

First Size only matters at equal pixel counts when the sensor technology generations are equal. There is far more innovation occurring with FF than with MF, and we are dealing with a very old 645D sensor.
The performance of a 42 MPIXEL Sony is better than the 645D (see DxO or other ratings) at base ISO.

Second I did recommend the Sony 7R3 as an alternative in my first post.... and he can also the latest Nikon FF which also has similar sensor from Sony... or the K1 for that matter.

The Sony a7RIII is about 2.5 grand so if this is about Money, the cost is a wash. He has Nikon Lenses so the 850 is another option for Full Frame.
My general point is that I see little investment by Pentax in MF and one buys into a system...where is the future of this system.
This is the main reason I sold off my 645D. And at the resolution of the 645D, one could get the Nikon or Sony but much better performance and High ISO

I had the 645D and sold it. Great images at low ISO but very limited camera. I would also question investing in Pentax MF when Fuji and others have shown up with more modern mirrorless designs.
In addition, Full Frame sensors have similar resolution to the 645D (like the sony A7RIII) and are more flexible and extensible systems.

Pre-emptive seller's remorse

given what has been happening with Pentax used lenses, the demand is dropping and prices with it. 10 years ago I would be able to sell lenses for more than i bought them for. but now the demand is considerably lower.....

So you can buy back in the future if you like at a lower price.....

Hi all

The flash fires but unless in X mode, overexposes
I have pushed the switch all the way and I have cleaned the contacts on both camera and flash....

AF 540 problem
Posted By spartan

HI

I am having problems getting my 540 flash (old version) to communicate with my K3. The Camera is not aware that the flash is mounted.. the Zoom function is not working and the camera does not recognize the flash thus the shutter speed is based upon ambient readings. The flash is set to P=TTL and is in master mode. The zoom is in auto. The only camera exposure mode that gets correct exposure is X mode.

When in wireless mode, the flash is triggered and the exposure is better, but I cannot get the flash into P-TTL mode (Only A or manual).

This was working the last time i tried to use the flash which was about a year ago....

Suggestions as what is the culprit, camera or flash?

seems like the criteria are image quality.. Video and AF are not as important....
But the FF mirrorless are not covered. Sony A7III would probably trump most of these cameras.
