First Photos with my Pentax 645 (15 photos)

This is the original Pentax 645 not the 645D

Well, I had to put the camera through its paces. I had the 55mm F2.8 (34mm on FF) and the 150mm F3.5 (94mm on FF) to try. The first 7 photos were with the 55mm and the last 8 photos were with the 150mm. Its amazing how much larger each negative is compared with 35mm film, sure you can hear numbers but to see the size difference is another thing. The first 4 photos were scanned poorly compared with the last 11, i just couldn't be bothered to go back and re-scan them. The Film was Fujifilm Neopan Acros ISO100 B&W and it was 5.5 years past its development due date and not likely stored in a cool location, I'd say it did just fine! There are 2 shots that look almost duplicated, i just figured i got my composition wrong from what i desired so i took the shot again, however the second shot was done at 1/60th sec and is still sharp which is pretty decent for a 94mm equiv. lens.

here they are in order
