About me:

I lead a successful career in Japan as a Music Video Director and Fashion Photographer but I would like to be recognized worldwide for my work. I shoot with the Canon 1D Mark IV and 7D, waiting for the Canon 1Ds Mark IV or 5D Mark III.

Reop: Why not mencioned Leica S?

Because it sucks! Have you ever shot with one? The focus is dog crap slow, and you never truly know if you're actually in focus because the AF registers that it's in focus, but the shot is actually still out of focus. Like all Leicas, it's a beautiful piece of overpriced art with excellent lenses, but I wouldn't want to rely on it in the studio shooting anything that wasn't locked down. The Hassy X1D is a better choice hands down. It's focus is a little better, but still not on par with Pentax or Fujifilm.

Woodyz: I still can't believe how little credit the 645Z gets. It's three years old and can still put up a fight. It can also use every Pentax 645 manual and autofocus lens created--without an adapter.

Yup. The 645Z was ahead of it's time and is still a great camera.
The only reasons I went for the GFX is Pentax's silence about future development, weight savings of a mirrorless system and Fujifilm's fast AF with wider point spread (though the Penny is no slouch).

PRohmer: My vote goes to X1d.

And why would think the GFX would be more suitable for moving subjects over the Pentax? Having shot with both and now owning a GFX, I can tell you that neither has good Continuous AF required to capture moving subjects consistently. I agree with you that when I'm required to shoot fast moving subjects, I prefer my Canon 5DSR with fast glass. In a studio and/or controlled lighting scenario, I reach for the GFX.

This is a really nice photo. I'm surprised no one has commented on it. Really nice emotion, action and lighting. Much respect for you and your work. Keep snapping.
