I had the Pentax 645Z for about two years, but I eventually sold all the Pentax stuff (still got some decent lenses to sell) as I didn't use it enough to warrant having that amount of cash tied up in it as well as all my Canon gear. There is a photographer I see on facebook sometimes called "Forgotten Heritage" or something, he uses only Pentax gear (K1, 645Z) and his images are stunning.

I found the 645Z to be outstanding, and as others have said multiple images for HDR is a thing of the past! The dynamic range is exceptional. I've never seen an advert for Pentax cameras - I've no idea why.

So I still have all my Canon gear, but even my 1DX2 has gathered a bit of dust since I bought the Olympus OMD EM1.2 last year - and that is a fantastic little system.

Nice photos with the K-1 and 150-450 lens as well as the Sigma 85. Flirting with getting a Pentax KP and 55-300 PLM lens and adding the DA* 300 f/4 later. I wish there were third party long lens choices as there are for Canon and Nikon.

Yes I know, if Sigma sold the 150-600mm sport I could sell my 7D. Unfortunately that isn't likely to be any time soon.

Do you use the 150-450 exclusively with a tripod?

Why isn't there a Pentax specific sub-forum anyway?

Unfortunately I hate the things so shoot exclusively hand held.

Not sure anyone has ever asked for one to be honest :-)
