Pentax 645Z Review - The Pentax 645Z is the most affordable medium-format camera on the market, and with a 51.4MP sensor and lack of an anti-alias filter it should be capable of resolving some stunning detail.

A camera such as the Pentax 645Z is unique in that you have to adjust your workflow to get the most out of the camera.

The large body and huge resolution means that you find yourself taking your time to get the shot you’re looking for, and if you don’t you’ll find the camera biting back and magnifying any imperfections.

However, if you are willing to put the effort in you can get some truly impressive results that are well worthy of the high-end professional market at which its intended, and with that in mind it certainly represents good value.
