If one reads the article it becomes pretty clear that with his shooting style and printing style the 645z is the current ideal. He never shoots tethered, he never uses flash, he often shoots hand-held and a lot of unplanned "capture the moment" type of shots, and if you know Michael from before you know he loves Adobe Lightroom.Like all reviews take it with a grain of salt. At the beginning he says:
The rub is that as the 645z gains in popularity (and this article will likely play a role), this set the tone of the article.
So I don't think the review is dishonestly biased in any way, but each reader must of course factor in his or her own way to shoot and print.
