I also have my doubts about the longevity of these lenses. Still using my Pentax Takumar lenses from the 60's.

Couldn't software developments give new life to old lenses? Focus peaking is certainly a step in the right direction. and if somebody would start developing apps that carried this idea further . . . ?

Perhaps there is no market for camera producers, but when and if camera software opens up to third-party software, we may not need all that electronics inside lenses.
Just a thought.
