Pentax 645D

Who knows when (if?) the elusive 40MP Pentax 645D medium-format digital camera will become available in the U.S. Though the long-awaited camera appears to be launching in Japan in June, repeated queries to our Pentax contact here in the States about the camera's domestic availability have not been returned.

While we sit twiddling our thumbs in the U.S., here's something to chew on: a handful of full resolution sample images shot with the confounded 645D have just been posted on the Pentax Japan website.

Go figure.
