I bought this camera just about a year ago after renting one for a weekend try-out. The one I rented didn't come with an instruction book, and the guy behind the counter at ACE Camera in the DC area said to me: "Punch a button, and if the front control dial doesn't do it, the back control dial will." It too me all of 15 minutes to figure out how to use the camera. If you've been using a dSLR for any length of time, then you can figure it out.

I shoot this camera only on a tripod. While I have hand-held it for a few images -- it feels good in the hand -- I want it to produce all the resolution possible from it 40-mp sensor. DXO Labs gives this senor very high ratings at number #5. I have been shooting with a Canon 5D2 since it was introduced, and the difference in dynamic range between the 645D and 5D2 is amazing, with the 645D producing far more shadow and highlight detail.

I own only one lens produced for the 645D, the 55mm 2.8 FA AL (IS) SDM. All my other lenses, from 35mm through 300mm, are a mix of Pentax 645 film camera lenses and Pentax 67 lenses (via an adapter). It would seem the designers of the 645D expected people to use these legacy lenses rather than design a whole new series of lenses specifically for the new camera. This is a great advantage because because there are many, many of these legacy lenses available used in both auto-focus and manual focus at extremely adventageous prices. While the purchase price of the camera body is a big hit, building a lens kit not so much so.

The body is extremely weather resistant -- I have made a number of images in the rain. Summer 2012 I made a three week, backroads trip from the northeast down to Texas in searing heat (well over 100 everyday), not the mention the high humidity.

I decided to upgrade from the Pentax K5 to the mighty 645D and must say, am pleased beyond all expectations at this purchase.If you are shopping for a larger than full frame, ie medium format camera, you may already know that the Pentax comes in at well under the price point of nearly every competitor. This is attractive. In my research, I had read of a lack of lenses for this platform, but as a landscape shooter, I tend to use manual focus and M mode to have full control over my image; I was pleasantly surprised to very easily find an array of available older lenses as well as a couple of new ones to add to my kit. I have seven 645 lenses, all primes, that cover the focal range I need for my style of shooting.

My rig includes the DFA 25mm, A-35, A-45, D-FA 55, A-75, A-120 Macro, FA-150, and the A-80-160 (yes, a zoom, icky). Overall, the quality of the glass is exceptional, in my opinion, on par with the wonderful K-mount FA Limited primes (31, 43, 77). I have a few favorite lenses already, but let's get back to the camera.

Figuring I'd need some time to adapt to using a new camera, I downloaded the manual a few days before the camera arrived so I could look it over. Well, it turns out, the 645D was designed nearly identical to the K7, K7, K?? series DSLR's, so the learning curve was nearly nothing. Handling was surprisingly easy, since the buttons are all laid out in the same places as my trusty K5. The first day I took out the 645D for some night shooting, I found my fingers slipping right onto my dials, ISO button, AF back button, AE-L, up/down arrow buttons, etc...everything was in a familiar place. This is a huge plus if you want to switch bodies at your shoot.

(If you don't like specifics, just know that this is a 3.5 star review and jump to the conclusion!)

After having spent a few days with this camera, I though it was time to come and share some of my thoughts on it. I am a wedding photographer, and decided to give this thing a rent (Lensrentals is a wonderful company btw) to see if at some point would be inclined to invest in the Medium Format digital system. A little more background - I have worked with several Mamiya 645's (film), but shoot mainly with Canon's 1Ds-MkII for weddings. Allow me to start with a pro/con list, and then progress to discussing some of the bigger points:

PROS
- Has that nice, medium format feel
- Not too heavy (coming from a 1Ds MkII with a giant battery)
- 4:3 Aspect Ratio is nice to shoot on digital!
- 40MP is a LOT to work with
- Sensor is 27% larger than full frame (1)
- RAW and JPEG Modes
- Compatible with old Pentax 645
- Viewfinder is bright and has 98% coverage (this I enjoyed!)
- Two SD card slots for backup
- ISO range from 100-1600 (2)
- Changeable focus (matte) screens

NEUTRAL
- No Image Stabilization. This is neutral because people have managed without it for a LONG time.

CONS
- Not a true medium format sensor
- According to DATA sheet, shutter is rated for (only) 50,000 actuations (3)
- Flash only syncs to 1/125
- 1.1FPS I know at 40MP, slower shutter speeds are to be expected, but with SD as the storage, are you surprised?
- Less than intuitive menu system, tons of useless buttons
- Uses SD cards, which are miles slowed than CF.
