    How does the PENTAX 645 compare with the Bronica ETRSi. Does anyone have any experience with both. Thanks in advance.

    Pentax uses inserts not separate film backs(no mid-roll changes), has a focal plane shutter(slow-ish sync speed), built-in metering, motorized film advance, good glass.
    Bronica has film backs, leaf shutter lenses(synch at any speed), crank, speed grip or motor advance options, modular finders(non-metered and metered), good glass.

    Both are affordable entry-level system cameras.
