Re: If P-R can release FA 645 lenses why not K mount

The issue as I understood it, cannot find the links now, was that the 35mm lenses used a particular type of glasses that is no longer made due to the lead in the ingredients. This may not have applied to the 645 lenses and as such they are free to be re-manufactured unmodified.
