Pentax 645D Gets $1200 Price Drop

Pentax 645D

The 40MP medium format Pentax 645D recently got a price drop from $9,995 to $8,795, which puts it even closer to the high-end 35mm DSLR range (see, e.g., Canon 1D X at $6,800 and Nikon D4 at $6,000).

Some retailers have already updated their list pricing to reflect the price drop (Adorama), while others have not (B&H Photo).  Expect the pricing to go into effect at all Pentax retailers soon.
