I wonder what the price will be for that. It looks very interesting. I shoot Nikon now, but I'm a longtime Pentax fan and user.

Price? Hopefully, under the Hasselblad rates ($30k+), and also the Mamiya ZD ($22k)...

If they could sell it under $10k, they would truly be breaking new ground. And, I might be able to afford one.

Having used the Pentax 645 for over 20 years, I applaude Pentax for making a digital version. Can't wait to take one out for a test ride.

Pentax canceled the digital 645 project.
