645D
Pentax's current medium format camera, the 645D.
 
Ricoh has announced that it is to exhibit four reference products at CP+ 2014. 

Taking place at the Pacifico Yokohama convention centre in Japan, CP+ is one of the largest and most comprehensive camera and imaging shows in Asia. 

On display will be a brand new Pentax medium format camera that will feature the latest super-high-resolution CMOS image sensor, high speed response in a variety of photographic applications and a tilting LCD monitor. It is scheduled for release in Spring 2014.

Also on display will be an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for the 645 mount, featuring newly designed optics. 

As well as these, a new telephoto macro lens for Q mount cameras will be on display, as well as a Pentax film duplication accessory, which will produce digital duplicates of silver-halide-film images in combination with a DSLR camera and flash unit.

Further details on all of these products are yet to be announced.

Glad to see Ricoh and Pentax believe there is still a market for medium format. Quite a few articles appeared a couple of years ago saying how popular opinion was that medium format would die with the full frame sensors hitting high pixel counts. Many expected Phase One to go out of business. But there is still a need for a large sensor, and the development of CMOS for medium format will open this format up to a whole new world. I miss having medium format in my bag - the detail and dynamic range of a large sensor simply can't be touched by full frame. I'm going to start saving later this year, and with three main brands to choose from, it will be interesting to see who gets my money!
