  • Pentax 645Z First impressions

  • August 04, 2014
  • By: THEO

The news about the new 645Z did pop up on the DPReview web site, and avidly read. It was then a matter of patience and obviously time till Henry's Exposure show, where there was a strong chance to get up close and personal with the new kid on the block. As a Pentax DSLR owner since 2005, not more than a glance was required in order to feel at home with this camera in hand, and all its controls. Because this was a pre-production model, the possibility of few real shots was not available, but that did not affect my delight of looking thru the very luminous viewfinder of this camera, especially if one remembers that the light level at this type of shows is quite low. The autofocus reaction was very fast, mentioning again the available conditions, the lens on the body being the standard. The gentleman at Ricoh stand, was kind and replaced the standard lens with the 400 mm F4 lens. That was the moment of not one but two surprises, first, the whole combination, body and lens, visually bulky, did not feel heavy at all, when aimed to a banner in order to have it in focus, then, because the AF was off, manual focus was s snap, and I did it twice, just to confirm the feeling. They did mention at the Ricoh's stand that the plan is to have a hands on shooting in the near future. Thus, in my book, this camera is on the favorites list. A chance to that potential hand on, will help me to complete this 'First impressions' review.
