Hi all,
And perhaps John Carlson can answer this...

I think it is great that PR released 645 lenses.. Why not introduce the best of the K mount lenses FA * such as the 24 F2, 85 1.4 etc? In the past I heard that these lenses had issues with lead included in the glass (never understood why this was an issue as it is encapsulated). However if this were true the 645 lenses would not be allowed back.

Unless they're going to finally do a full frame, there are very few FA lenses we really need.  Why not just make a new DA 24/2 or 28/2, and maybe a long portrait lens like 120/2.  That plus what's on the roadmap should do us pretty well.
