ABSOLUTELY NONE.  NOTHING, ZIP, ZILCH, SQUAT,

You may want to look at the Mamiya for budget, the Hasselbald H3 system with digital or wait for the Rollei Hy6

Best of Luck,

Supposedly Pentax is coming out with a 645 Digital in 2007.  It was originally slated for 18MP but was scrapped for higher MP model to remain competitive.  I have high hopes for this model as it was originally predicted to be competitively priced with the high end Canon.

As far as I know, there is no digital back that works with these film cameras.
The reason is that they don't have a removable back, just a removable film
insert.  Pentax has been flirting with the idea of introducting a 30 megapixel
digital camera to work with their 645 lenses.  However, the Pentax rep i spoke to
at photoplus expo indicated that Pentax has not yet decided whether to
produce the camera.  I assume that they must have a working prototype,
but i've never heard any confirmation of this assumption.  I'm eager to
hear whether anyone reading this thread has any information about their plans.
