Re: Cheap manual focuse Limiteds lenses

Great idea however:

  • Viewfinder would be serious engineering to get back to MF sizes

  • MF focussing screens ala Katzeye would also be needed

  • Exposure algorithm for above would need to reengineered for MF type focussing screens

  • Takumar & K lenses, the good ones, were really overengineered and Pentax lost money selling them

So if the fixed all of above then...
28 f/3.5 (Takumar / K version)
35 f/3.5 (Takumar / K version)
50 f/1.2 (A version)
85 f/1.4 (A* Version)
135 f/2.5 (K version)
200 f/2.5 (K version)
200 f/4 Macro (A* version)

They would be my choice for MF greats over the years that deserve to be brought back.
