Have you considered the refurbished 645Zs on the Ricoh USA website?

On my K-1 MKII: FA 43mm, DFA 100mm WR, and F* 300mm f4.5

Will probably add a 4th when the new DFA 21mm becomes available.

One consideration in whether to stay with Pentax or move to another brand would be your current lens collection. You could probably use them with an adapter but you would lose autofocus functionality with them. How much would it cost you to replace your favorite/most used lenses with those for the new brand?

I wouldn't hesitate to buy a used K-1mkII from someplace like KEH which offers a 6 month warranty. Its better than most manufactures' refurbished warranties which are usually for 90 days. Keep in mind that the camera did not break, you broke it. Pentax makes quality cameras. There is also a warranty on the repairs.

What are your DSLR dealbreakers?

It would if the major carriers did not offer 0% financing and 24 months to pay for them (conveniently rolled into their monthly cell phone bill). Most large retailers like Best Buy and Amazon offer their card holders 0% financing and 6, 12, 18, or 24 months to pay especially during the holiday shopping season. Don't have credit? Can't qualify for a monthly cell phone contract? Chances are you are not the owner of a $1000 smart phone. Maybe the camera manufacturers should take a page from the wireless carriers' play book. Offer their cameras with low or 0% financing on an installment plan, sell monthly insurance on them, buy them back at upgrade time, refurbish them and use them for fulfilling insurance claims (that also have a copayment). I bet B&H sold a lot of cameras with their 0% 24-month financing over the holidays.

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

I did sell it. Missed it after doing so. Now have another one, so am interested in the new 70-210. I thought I saw the lens pouch for $34.95 on B&H, but maybe I am remembering wrong. The case was a standard accessory on the Pentax version of the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 macro. I had a copy and it came with it. I like Pentax's cases better:-)

I guess the deal breakers for me are the features that I have come to cherish with my Pentax DSLR cameras:

Excellent ergonomics
Buttons instead of menus for white balance, iso, and exposure compensation
IBIS
LCD on top
Front and rear dials
Image replay zoom using a dial, not an inconveniently placed button
Excellent dynamic range
Accessories that can be used on multiple models, i.e. cable releases, IR remotes, batteries
SD card option

Adorama's specs show the lens case as being "optional". $1000+ lens and they can't include a lens pouch? Tacky.

Someone should buy this lens. It is such a compact lens that even without the tripod collar it is a very hand holdable lens. The sharpness, contrast and bokeh are to live for. I love my copy. Whoever buys it will not be disappointed.

What is the state of Pentax MF??

The 50 megapixel GFX bodies are cropped MF without IBIS. The 100 megapixel GFX is overkill in size, megapixels, and expense for amateur photographers. A new 645 body with a full MF sized sensor and IBIS would be the sweet spot especially if it was similar in cost to the 645Z. Given the 645 DFA lenses, I wouldn’t be surprised if it were the next iteration of a digital 645.

I recently ordered a new Spyderpro holster hand strap from B&H. I’ve purchased this strap for a couple of my other cameras and it has always come packaged in its retail box. This time is arrived in a zip loc type bag with a sticker affixed to the front. It was a defective item as the part that connects to the D-rings was shorter than normal. It appears they sent me someone’s returned item and were attempting to pass it off as new. I am a long time B&H customer and I am very disappointed with this behavior on their part. I am returning the strap and B&H will not be my first choice for future purchases.
