You know, this made me think of something I just read of Galen Rowell a couple days ago. I think it was advice in a magazine article given in a top ten list format. He said don't take record shots. Shoot every shot like its going into National Geographic. I'd probably want the best IQ for National Geographic. :)--

Maybe, but I went to a presentation by two guys from National Geographic who went into the jungle in New Guinea to shoot a very rare type of bird, videos and still. They brought all Canon 5D's, and the shots were pretty awesome!

Well that was a little bit of hyperbole on my part for the sake of emphasis.

The images I make that go into my personal galleries are vastly more important to me than any image taken by another person for any other purpose (unless someone gets a shot of God maybe) and it may have been a lapse in logic to use that comparison compositionally the way I did.

So, the 5D's survived the rainforests of New Guinea with little or no weather-sealing.

I owned a 5D from month one of its release and it was a wonderful introduction to FF, but the 5D2 produced better and more versatile images for PPing with more tools to help get the capture done for the type of photography I am into. The 5D3 maintained the IQ if not enhanced IQ a bit but it's various additional tools make capture exponentially easier for a much, much broader array of photography styles. The D800E produces better and more versatile images for PPing than the 5D3 but does not beat the 5D3 in the tools that help make capture easier. The 645Z has the potential to eclipse the D800E in raw IQ if not devolve a bit with handy tools.

Some of the answers to be determined concerning the 645Z: lenses (oem and adapted - AF vs MF, stabilized), bracketing, Live View implementation, high ISO performance, will Markins make a camera plate for it..
