Well now you've done it! I have shot 120 and 4x5 in the past and always dreamed of going MF in digital, but there are some tempting prices on used and even some promotions on new P 645Z cameras out there. After seeing your photos, I may just have to get one!

Rob,

You will not regret it, and if you check on ebay you can find great deals on legacy glass. I buy from Japanese camera stores on ebay and for the most part the longest I have waited on shipping is a week.

Yes, I was seriously considering going with the legacy glass as it is so affordable on eBay.

I'm also considering the Fuji GFX50R and adapting the Pentax legacy lenses.  The Fuji lenses are insanely expensive.  But the real thing tipping me this way (if I don't go for a 645D) is that Capture 1 Pro actually supports the Fuji MF RAW files while they do not support the Raw files for Pentax or other non-Phase1 backs.

Thanks for the encouragement!
