Pentax 645D Medium Format is officially announced for Japan (eight 2mp samples shown!)

The Pentax 645D is officially announced again! It will have a 40-megapixel 44x33 Kodak sensor with 14-bit A/D converter, with a target release date of May 2010 in Japan for around 850,000 yen. It has an "element-proof" body (water, dust bunnies, freeze).


Pentax 645D Sample Pictures (2-megapixel samples)
+ On the 645D mini site click on the top-left "Impression" rectangle. Then you will see profiles of two photographers. Click on the feathers (right side of the screen) of each photographer. These will get you eight two-megapixel samples, five landscape plus three portrait from the two photographers profiled there. [NEW]
