    90D or RP?

    The RP with the EF lens adapter allows you to use switch seamlessly between EF lenses in "full frame", and EF-S lenses in APS-C crop mode. You'll get 26Mp images in full-frame and around 10Mpixel in crop mode (1.6x smaller in both directions). The 90D is crop-mode only and will give you 33Mp...

    The Fabulous Fuji X owners thread

    If you're intended astro use includes leaving the camera out for extended periods in potentially frosty/dewy conditions I would suggest weather sealing would be a good thing to have.

    Pentax 645z

    The other option for that price range is a used Hasselblad X1D - mpb usually have a couple in stock. That would be my choice if I were going back into MF digital.

    Olympus OM-D E-M5, E-M1, E-M10 & Mark 2 Owners Thread

    I think that works very well and is a definite improvement on the original.

    Pentax 645z

    Sounds like you'd get along well with it then. I must admit it's one of the things I regret selling, but I'm not in the first flush of youth anymore and needed to reduce the weight I was carrying around! It might take time to get used to the different form factor - it's a different shape from...

    Pentax 645z

    I've not used a D810 (not a Nikon fan!) but I would expect the Nikon to beat the Pentax in any AF comparison. Any MF system has to haul a lot more glass around so in general AF is always going to be slower. For landscapes that's not a problem, and I always found the Pentax very accurate.

    Pentax 645z

    I had one for a while but ultimately found it too cumbersome to carry around. The lenses are good but not cheap - same as any MF system I suppose. I had a Hasselblad H3D-39 before it which was older, lower resolution, and the lenses are more expensive, but the results were nicer! Both...

    Fujifilm Upgrade advice

    Ah yes I agree with you there. I’ve never been a fan of the fold-out screens and much prefer the one on the XT-3.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    I'd been considering picking up a used RP and have been watching the mpb site for a while. As new condition ones are on there for £889. Just checked on e-infin and hdew and they're £829 and £839 respectively for a new one. I know they're grey import so selling it on later may be more...

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    If someone were looking to try out an EOS R system on a budget, and was deciding between a used RP or used R, which would you recommend? Used prices at MPB start at £944 for the RP and £1279 for the R - is the R worth the extra or is the newer RP actually a better bet?

    So the 70-200/4 is going to be £1699 and the 50/1.8 is £219! Hardly bargains are they?
