Need Opinion: Leica S06 Fuji GFX Pentax 645Z
« on: June 12, 2018, 01:51:27 PM »

  If you were looking for a Camera and Just 1 Lens for your personal use and mainly do portraits and some group shots using a 80mm 2.8 lens.  Limited funds . I know all of these would work. Use Flash off camera and Max ISO 800.   All suggestions appreciated.

If I were starting from scratch I'd give the Fuji a shot. (I have a Pentax 645D and use it mainly with the 75/2.8. Great combo!)

Any of those three cameras will make excellent pictures. Which do you prefer?

Personally I would steer clear of the Leica S 006. While the IQ is very good, it suffers from sensor corrosion and as far as I understand there is no permanent fix like there was for the M9. It's a time bomb.

I think the Pentax 645z is the most underrated medium format camera. It's exceptionally good and ridiculously cheap these days, the only expense is the extra bulk. But those who own it rave about it and say it is very well designed.

  I agree about the Leica. Also, The Pentax 645Z is an Excellent choice and the Lenses are reasonable and Very good IQ. I am going to see if the Z comes down in price. Its about the same price as the GFX. GFX newer Technology and Lighter but the Lenses are Much more,  In time I will see what happens to the 645Z in price.  Thank you

The Fuji and Hassy are novel mirrorless body and lens designs, which will scale well to 100Mp sensors and above  in a few months and will probably have a 10-20 year run. The Pentax and its lenses, are now a good system approaching a dead end and new and used prices will evolve accordingly. Phase XF and Hassy H are in a similar position, but on all these dinosaurs one more refresh seems probable, as Sony’s sensors make the electronics redesign trivial

Laisser aller is not used in english? I think I heard it sometimes. C'est la vie mon ami.
