Pentax 645 w/ Pentax-A 75mm 1:2.8

Introduced in 1984, the Pentax 645 promised a superior 6×4.5 result with 120, 220 or 70mm film. After spending a week obsessing over this camera I finally found a UK based shop selling one. There are LOADS to be found on eBay and shipping from Japan but I didn’t want to deal with import charges – having never bought a camera from Japan before I didn’t want this one to be my first experience.
