Pentax 645D Camera Discontinued, the 100MP Successor Coming at Photokina 2016?

The Pentax 645D medium format camera is now listed as discontinued at B&H. And other retailers like Amazon and Adorama are clearing up their stocked units. And it is highly like that Pentax will announce the Pentax 645D successor with 4K feature at Photokina 2016 in September.  The Pentax 645Z camera is currently listed at Amazon and B&H for $6,996.95.

Earlier this year Pentax is rumored to announce a new medium format camera featuring Sony’s new 100MP seneor, and this 100MP sensor was already used in Hasselblad H6D-100c, and followed by Phase One XF 100MP medium format camera.

So, if everything goes fine, we’ll see the 100MP medium format camera from Pentax at Photokina 2016 in September.

Speaking of the medium format camera, Sony is allegedly working on a new 100MP medium format mirrorless camera and this new camera will be unveiled at Photokina 2016 this September. In addition, Fujifilm is rumored to announce a 50MP medium format camera, and the announcement date is rumored for 2017.

    Did you mean the 645Z? The 645D is long discontinued as far as I know.

      I thought the same but bought one new about 6 months ago. Maybe they had a warehouse full of those sensors or something.

        Ok, then maybe it’s the very 645D. But the part where he says “Pentax will announce the Pentax 645D successor with 4K feature at Photokina 2016″ only adds to my confusion. It should have been written “645Z successor”.

        • Matt Burt

          Yes, I suspect a typo or misunderstanding of some sort.

    How is this news? The 645Z replaced the 645D in 2014 and the 645Z has not been discontinued.
