I`m new user on this forum, so my first words should be "hi everyone"
Well, the question i need help to be resolved is - which one to buy, Pentax 645Z or Hassy H5D-40? Couldn`t find any comparing tests on the internet, so i've decided to try make thru it with your help.
I understand that these two are very different cameras, made for different tasks. Hassy made to shine in studio at the first place and break down twice a month, pentax made to perform good everywere, and to crush bricks under heavy rain, but...i`ve found a severe amount of test shots from hassy, and to my opinion, it`s definetly sharper and more detailed than pentax shots i could find (and i`ve found a lot), even considering the sensor resolution difference. Can`t get rid of that feeling.
And that`s a question.
You see, my work consists of nearly 50/50 studio/outdoors shooting. Also i make a lot of video. All i do now i do on my old canon 5dmk2, and it`s quite good actually. So, for me hassy would be and that`s no question a big leap of IQ in studio shootings. And for outdoor and video i still have canon workhorse. So hassy is an addition, not the replacement.
On the other hand, pentax is an IQ leap in any kind of shooting i could put it in, exept maybe sports. And handheld video. Maybe. So that`s a replacement, not addition.
So, the question is - is hassy really considerably sharper and provides beter IQ than 645z? I`m not asking about reliability or iso speeds or any other obvious pros of pentax, just about sharpness and details.
Because that`s only thing that important for me now to go and buy one of these, and there`s no option for me to go and try both.
If anyone, ho tried both of this cameras help me and make my doubts go away, i would be extremely thankful. Cmon, wise guys, really desperate fo help
