LHS isn't flat enough

Thanks - I agree that an audio jack would have been good but I guess pros would use an external mic and jack anyway.

The only other thing I see wrong is that you can't lay it flat on LHS because of the placement of the strap connector - picky I know but Pentax has always been good in this area for rested portrait shots ie kept LHS flat & level.

No much grief there Dean,

as LHS does not have enough of flat surface anyway. It a bare minimum made by circular surface to keep it attached to the tripod. I wouldn't rely on it.

Like any MF, 645Z/D is mainly a tripod camera.

Although, a Leica T Type sort of strap connector would be cool for future Pentax products. That one is much better.
