I finally got a Pentax 645D, and I had fun (as usual) to make a comparison with my Nikon D600
I would have liked more compared to a Nikon D800, which I do not yet have, Unfortunately!

Your turn to judge

Pentax 645D (2010) / Nikon D600 (2012)

N°01 Pentax 645D (2010)

N°01 Nikon D600 (2012)

N°02 Pentax 645D (2010)

N°02 Nikon D600 (2012)

Your remarks are welcome!

Is it just me, or is there a commanding presence that image from MF have over 35mm... Its like the difference between a shot made with a phone and a 35mm. Once looks real the other looks ok but something is missing. I have a D800 and it amazes me every time as it nears that level of presence but its not quite there.
