645 lenses for K5?

Don't know why but every time I go to buy a replacement DSLR camera to the one that was stolen I get totally disenchanted. With recent generation DSLR being so good it certainly has nothing to do with camera quality. Film on the other hand are very intriguing (as always) so with a future eye on K5 I am planning to buy now a pentax 645 or 645n w lenses. My question for those who have used them and now using any Pentax DSLR or both are:

1. Is there a optical advantage to FA vs. A lenses when used on the 645?

2. Can the FA lenses of the 645 be used on k5 as autofocus and if so, how much cost a reliable converter?
3. How do the 645 lenses perform on a dslr body?

4. Last but not least - other than autofocus, does the 645n have any other photographic advantage over older 645

Your replies are much appreciated
