  1. Deal breaker 1/125 sync speed… way to low for general photography. Maybe average for studio work.

  2. OMG, they are back!

  3. What is more beautiful than Pentax 645z is your watch.

  4. Tony reminds me of an old hollywood star! In other news…one heck of a Camera!!

  5. Forget that Pentax! Get a 5dsr :)

  6. Yeh, there is faster way of checking critical focus on screen. You don't have to look far. Nikon allows one click 100% zoom on point of focus and with rotation of the dial it will jump directly between all faces in the frame. It doesn't get much faster than that

  7. I don't mean to be critical but don't tell all these people that you can't do certain things with the pentax unless you know for sure what it can or cannot do.

  9. What camera did you use for the side view?

  10. I've tried this camera brand new at 1600 ISO and it doesn't compete with my Nikon D600. I had to work really hard to get that noise out in Lightroom for an inferior image. I couldn't take this thing to a concert. The noise and image quality are substandard by comparison. I'm not impressed with this camera, HOWEVER, I would say the Pentax K-5 and K-3 are fantastic, great cameras. I would possibly consider this camera to rent if I needed 50 MP at 100-400 ISO but the new canon coming out might be better and cheaper to rent we'll see.

  11. This review should be an incentive to test the Pentax K-3 (or rather its successor now…. it will be issued soon). Because many of the features that you liked on this camera are also on the K-3 (double SD slot, USB3.0, stars photography features etc).

    Any specific reason? I guess you have your hands full with the most popular cameras but the Pentax community would check out your reviews and opinions at once.

  12. shooting with this camera is Amazing, the 150mm lens F.2.8 shoots at F 2.2 with the reverse crop.  So If you want blurred backgrounds with super sharp eyes.  Monet would very pleased.

  13. Many thanks for your video, it was a pleasure to watch and very informative. Are you going to make a new one with a hands on review? Hope so!  

  14. meh..3 FPS is like my canon T3 which i also use somtimes for fast object :p 

  15. I shoot landscape with this camera as well as a d800 with some high end Ziess glass and let me tell you they just dont compare. When I first looked at the files on my screen from the pentax I literally laughed out loud. It was a laugh of amazement as what I was looking at, just beautiful. I am a pro photoshop user working in fashion advertising and I work on big MF (hassy,phase1) files all the time so I had a good idea of what to expect, did not disappoint one bit..

  16. somehow pointless camera, pair a zeiss otus with 5D mark 3 and you have almost same level of sharpness of less than half price 

  17. cool my nokia has 41 mp but not a true because it drops down to 12mp and 6 mp. I think if nokia  would have 240mp and lillte thicker cell phone and frist full fame 40 mp cell phone. And interchange lenses on a cell phone. Micro lens. thanks for the info.
