Hi Rich,

welcome to the forum. What Pentax equipment do you use for your portraits and how do you find it performs?

Thanks Karlo.

I have looked at the Pentax 645z, and have had nice conversations with the folks at trade shows. I have yet to make the purchase yet.

I can confirm the Z is a stunning piece of kit for both portraits and landscapes.

You've come to the right place then Rich as Chris and a few others on here do use that camera and i'm sure wil be able to help you decide to purchase one!

I've been drooling over the same one. Gotta keep saving...and then one of these days it'll happen.

my studio mate has tried a whole bunch of medium format systems..but this is the one that caught my eye for sure.

good luck! =]

Someone was using the 645z at my studio the other day. I chatted them up about it a little bit and they said they love it! They use it mainly for portrait work but he said that some of his product photography clients actually require him to use a camera like that for the job. So it has actually made him some new money just from having it!

I have been interested in the 645Z for awhile for my headshots and portraits, just trying to find the resources to make the jump into MF.
