I bought a slightly used 645D with 5 lenses - FA35mm, the new 55mm, FA75mm, FA120mm & the 200FA lens.  The whole lot was cheaper than a new 800e with equivalent lenses.

Best money I have ever spent.  The first 4 lenses I listed are all excellent and very sharp, and the 200mm lens is still very good.  The IQ I find is noticeably better than most FF images, and the whole kit is so easy to use.

I will not be upgrading to the 645Z - no need really.  I photograph landscapes & buildings, and mostly use a tripod, so high iso settings are not that important.

Good luck with your research.
