  • I think the Pentax 645Z will clearly outperform the IQ of the D5. And the price points are the same. Yes the FF Nikon is easier to use and yes the system is more versatile but for studio,...

  • all else remains the same.
  • Replied in Get it...

  • yes you are right. My K5 is better on a per pixel basis as is the 645D. Must be due to greater photon capture vs. noise in larger pixel sensors.... and it really shows in sky shots which are very ...
