Despite the argument that megapixels don’t matter as much as ISO, this 40 megapixel behemoth from Pentax seeks to remind you that it doesn’t matter how much you suck as a photographer; it only matters that your photos are bigger than everyone else’s.
Joking aside, the medium-format, interchangeable-lens 645D lists quite a few impressive features: an aluminum chassis, an 11-point autofocus system, 77-segment luminance metering, and on-camera visual effect/parameter customization.
For those with a particular penchant for exposure control, the camera also supports a multi-mode exposure system allowing for high-dynamic range and precise sensitivity manipulation.
The 645D also boasts a long-lasting battery (800 shots at full charge), HDMI output, dual SDHC slots, and a 3-inch TFT LCD.

All of this could be yours this May for a measly ¥850,000 (~$9500 USD), if you decide to import from Japan. No word on a North American release.
