Bruce, may I nominate this for the Critique of the Year? Wink

In that case, I may use it again.

Does Pentax even offer a dealer pricing and support structure?


Capture Integration, last time I checked, was U.S. dealer for the 645D, not sure if they will pick up the 645Z.   I am not sure how they handled in warranty repairs, as I thought the only repair facility for the 645D was in Japan.

With the introduction of CMOS sensors into the medium-format world, what does the future look like for CCD sensors?

In your view, is there a CCD look or is it something that is vastly overvalued?

Is CMOS in your future or are you one of the photographers who is not so impressed with the latest CMOS medium-format sensor offerings?

What is your view in general about the impressions of other photographers about the CMOS sensors? Is the problem only the price? Do you predict a good future or a serious flop of the new equipment?

You have completely overlooked that I've answered all the above... but you "cropped" my reply.
Where in your reply do you say anything about the effect of lost lens sales?

What a wonderful surprise this morining: Capture Integration interviewed Cameron Davidson, the famous aerial, advertising and people photographer, about his experience of shooting with Leaf Aptus 75, Leaf Credo 60, his influences and the change in photography in the past 20 years:

He is one of my favourite photographers, with a great eye and fabulous sense for lighting.

Well I expected a bigger sh*t storm.  Grin However it is a good article. I never look at an image and think whether or not it is "reality", whatever that may be. I look at an image and think about how it makes me feel, how it makes me think and wonder about the image. To me photography is the vision of the photographer and it is to invoke a feeling or a message.

I am one of those fools, selling off most of my Canon equipment and moving to the 800 series Nikon's.  Never looked back, as the 800 gave me what Canon can't, so for me it was easily justifiable.  It's an individual decision for each photographer and I agree changing back again would make no sense as I really can't see ever needing more than I have with the 800 series. 

Waiting on Canon to follow up their long used 20-21MP lineup to me may be the fools game. 

Nikon, Pentax, Sony, all use Sony chips, and now so do Phase One and Hassi.  Canon still fabs their own chips, and no doubt have had some trouble getting to the same level of DR of the 2012 Sony, 2013 Sony and now 2014 Sony Chips.  Sure if they come out with a Foveon type chip, it may revolutionize everything again, however no one has yet to make one of these that performs very well in low light or can give the same range of DR of a single image that the Sony chips can.  Canon is now getting surpassed even in video, with the new A7s now coming soon.  Only Canon knows whats coming next and they are not talking for sure. 

Competition is great, as it helps to keep prices down, and I would love to see Canon get a new chip set out, and hopefully they might in Sept at Photokina.  However it still may not be available till 2015. 


Some of us can remember when Nikon had very little to offer the digital photographer, it switches around. Canon fabricating their own sensor is a plus for Canon. Nikon could find themselves over a Sony shaped barrel, Sony are getting very aggressive, Nikon have flown the Sony flag very well for them.
I have some good L lenses, they could fit the A7r if I needed. I can see the temptation in changing to Nikon, it will be  swings and round-a-bouts again.

You have completely overlooked my headline point, which is that offering a back for other bodies could cause Pentax to lose some highly profitable lens sales.  More so since the Pentax 645 system has no body on which such a back could be used, so unlike Phase One or Sinar backs, and even more so Hasselblad backs, a Pentax back would be used solely with bodies and lenses from other makers.  Remember that Kodak (and Leaf and Imacon and Phase One) eventually abandoned a business model without bodies, even with their backs already developed and in production: the situation would be worse for Pentax which would have some R&D expenses to launch a back, and would have to fight the likely lock-in efforts of the companies making DMF bodies, like proprietary back-to-body communication.

One possible alternative is that Ricoh could also invest in a more modular Pentax 645 body, one that accepts separate backs. But Pentax has never taken that approach with its 645 system, and I doubt that it would be seen as profitable now by the Ricoh management.  (There would be the appeal of being able to use either a film or a digital back, but dampened by the format sizes being so different, so that different viewfinders would be highly desirable, and Pentax has also never had interchangeable viewfinders, so adding that option would be yet another R&D expense.)

I didn't suggest not using time machine. I do suggest you consider a second method of backup or archiving that will maintain data for a longer term. I don't like putting all my backup eggs in a single basket.
