Revisiting the Pentax 645Z with the Pentax 28-45mm and 35mm f/3.5

Get Pentax 645 and Pentax 35mm f/3.5 and Pentax 28-45mm f/4.5 at B&H Photo.

I last looked at the Pentax 645Z back in 2014; see my in-depth review of the Pentax 645Z and/or view Pentax 645Z and 645D and Pentax medium format lens coverage.

On the way is the Pentax 645Z with two of the most recent lenses, the Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA645 35mm f/3.5 AL [IF] and the Pentax HD PENTAX-DA645 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR zoom, equivalent in field of view to focal lengths of ~28mm and ~23-36mm.

The Pentax 645Z has a beautiful sensor, perhaps a little better quality than the Nikon D810. I’d love to see its sensor in a Mamiya 7 II style fixed-lens camera: might Pentax or Fujifilm or maybe even Sony deliver such a thing this year?

See the portrait examples. The Pentax 645Z with the Pentax 90mm f/2.8 is a great combination, the 90/2.8 being a must-have lens for the 645Z.
