I am wondering if Pentax have started to make the limited lenses again, maybe in Vietnam. The reason I say this is that here in Australia they have always been very difficult to get in black or silver, i had toy buy my black 31mm in the US and my black 77mm was old stock sitting at my dealer, I don't own the 43mm sadly. Lately i have noticed lots of stores here advertising the 77mm in black or silver and the Pentax importer to Australia has a online retail which seems to have all the limiteds in black or silver available, very different to a couple of years back when they could not even give me a guess when they would have a 31mm available.

Lenses are made in large batches. When the inventory is getting low, they make another batch. If the lens has been discontinued, they don't make another batch. There has been no announcement from Ricoh that the FA Limiteds are discontinued. IMO, until we hear official word, FA Limiteds are current lenses, not discontinued and this epitaph thread is premature.
