With old lenses being re-released, what is more important to you?

The FA* lenses could be re-made without change.

The FA Limited should have a focus MF/AF shift function added.

Focus shift aka quick shift is a good point. I wonder if any lens has ever had that added in a v2 without changing the optics. The DA 18-55 AL II (quick shift) and DA L 18-55 AL (no quick shift) were introduced in the same year, and the previous model (DA 18-55 AL) is nearly identical and has quick shift, so it looks more like it was dropped on one model rather than added. Similarly, according to PentaxForums, quick shift was dropped when the 40mm XS version of the 40mm Limited was created.

Is it a fairly small component to be added?

Loving aperture rings, focus throw and distance scales.
