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.

The 645 lenses which are now being offered in the US were never out of production. They were made in limited volumes and the Japanese market consumed almost all of them and Europe had what was left.

Whilst I would like to see some of the FA lenses available again, John's already talked about some of the problems with that http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53502536
