Recently I laid awake wondering why I bought the Pentax 645D. I remembered it had something to do with it being the most affordable digital medium format camera (albeit with a cropped sensor). Back when the 645Z was not available yet, nor the Canon 5DS R (a viable alternative to medium format if you are heavily invested in Canon gear, as I was). And: there is a beautiful longish leaf shutter lens available for it (advantage Pentax over Canon).
It felt like time to shoot a little test image to refresh my memory and rekindle my love for the 645D and its beautiful 40 megapixel CCD with no anti-aliasing filter. I shot a small vase with some flowers on my kitchen table using the 645D and Pentax 90 mm macro.
So, why did I buy the Pentax 645D? Here is my testshot:
