Landscapers: Pentax 645Z vs Canon's hi-rez monster

whatever the MPs turn out to be.

The 645Z, $8499, 51 MPs. on a sensor larger than FF, weather sealed, 25 cross-type AF points, and wait for it.............. articulating LCD.

3 fps.

Lenses for the system mostly look reasonably priced although you won't find any pity-fifty pricing. The MF>FF crop factor is .79 according to DPR.

I could sell my whole 35mm kit and buy the 645Z and get deep into their lens lineup with the rest of the money.

Please note I addressed this to landscape photographers, not the machine-gunners.
