Why not just re-issue the Minolta 28/2, 35/2 and 100/2? All are supposed to be superb on FF

There's a rumor that those lenses (and others - 28-135/4-4.5?) were made with lead-containing glass, and can no longer be manufactured due to newer environmental restrictions. Canikon equivalents were grandfathered in and are still being made, but as Minolta ceased manufacturing of those lenses getting grandfathered in isn't possible.
