That really is stunning. And it's apparent that 'technique' is just as important as lens sharpness and sensor quality. I'm pleased to see you point that out as it's also important with less expensive equipment, and this is a good reminder. You make that 645 Sing!

Cheers. Ernie

Thanks, Ernie! You're so correct. Proper technique is important for all camera systems. I never on any photo outing without a tripod. In fact, if I have to cut down on weight, I'd rather not take a lens rather than leave behind my tripod.

Wow, Mahesh. It's a good thing those 645D's are out of my price range or I'd have to have one or two! 8^D

Thank you, Chris! It's probably that you don't have one of these beasts...I'd hate for you to make me look bad.

Bigger was better in the film days and as you've shown here the same is still true for digital!

Thanks, Gerald. Yes, bigger is better when it comes to pixel sizes and resolution, especially for my type of photography.

The crop image is like a image from a P&S camera. The 645D is made up of hundreds of P&S cameras....

Is the print size from 645D comparable to 120 film? I can't afford a 645D, but I might be able to get a Pentax MF camera, if I am lucky...^^

Ultimate image quality

For me it´s undoubtedly the camera with the best, uncompromising, image quality on the market. Fantastic photo!

Naw, that award probably goes to the $44,000 phase 1 iq180. Nothing in the prc range can compare to the 645d though

Thanks, Lee! Haha. I never thought of it that way...a bunch of P&S picts put together.

I don't know ho the files from the 645D compare with 120 film. I've not made the comparison myself.

I suspect you're correct, spoorthy. I'll have to wait till the 80MP camera comes down in price a bit.
