Like the K50, it's one of the few in its class with a dust-proof, weather-resistant body. It also comes with a more up-to-date AF system, extended movie recording and a vari-angle monitor as well as built in support for Wi-Fi and NFC.
I do not make statements like the one found in the title of this article lightly. I only came to this conclusion after shooting with the Pentax for the past three months, in various conditions and locations around California, weighing the opinions of photographers I greatly respect.
The new Pentax K-3 II’s advanced features, image quality, ruggedness, and performance will be no surprise to Pentax loyalists. Those photographers have known that Pentax’s DSLR cameras have been at the technological forefront for years.

I recently purchased a Pentax 645z. I rarely do gear reviews since the internet is flooded with them but since there are actually not too many reviews to be found for this somewhat rarefied camera (and those that exist are often for fashion, wedding or commercial work) I thought I should provide my own thoughts on it from a landscape photography perspective.
