The lenses aren't anything too special, it's the rocking horse poo items such as the converters and extension ring set that took ages to find.

And that is where I start to run into problems...

The 645D for my kind of work/style also "needs" the 25mm lens to go with it, that's a cool 13k investment! Had it been a full 6cm by 4.5cm size chip I'd have been very happy with the lenses I have.

Just think what else you could invest in with 13k burning a hole in your pocket!!!

The 645D is a very fine camera but it's not exactly all that flexible. You do need to run a DSLR system alongside it for other day-to-day photography.

It saddens me to say it but the equation above only seems to have one outcome for me and that is to liquidate my current investment in Pentax 645!
