Pentax 645N or Mamiya 645?

It has been a while since I have been thinking of getting a medium format camera that is not a twin reflex. Originally I thought of the Pentax 6×7, but as I researched I grew  towards either the Pentax 645N or the Mamiya 645.



Can you guys help me out? Which would you go for and why? Please share your thoughts down below. Thank you.

    I never used the Pentax 645N. I use an old Mamiya 645 1000s. I bought it because it was sold with a 80mm f/1.9 lens. Of course it can use many lenses. Also you can buy adapters for other medium format lenses : Pentax 6×7, Hasselblad, Praktisix. I forgot to mention that you can buy a Mamiya 145mm soft focus lens. This SF lens is much easier to use than the 120mm SF Pentax 6×7 lens.
