I've shot tens of thousands of images with the original Pentax 645 film cameras. No doubt a great camera system. The 645D is a BIG MISS on many fronts.

Too much capital investment for too short a lifespan with too little reward. In the digital world the "sweet spot" between IQ/mobility/cost is full frame. I am willing to go with the K-5 iis because it's (just) enough of a weight and size and cost savings to justify the SLIGHT decrease in IQ for my needs. The Pentax interface and handling are icing on the cake.

BUt the DREAM is still a K-5 style FF with all the K-5 attributes. Like what the MX was to the nasty big brick block cameras of 1976.
