is this a discontinued lens?
The lens is still listed at pentaximaging.com, so it must not yet be discontinued.

Yes, although it appears there still are stocks of it.

That's weird, they list the FA35mmF2AL which has been discontinued for a while now.

Who says the FA 35mm f/2 is discontinued?
It is still available and confirmed by my local agent representatives in person today.

Hi mate,

Could you clarify the proper way to link Flickr images into the forums?

Not sure what insertimage and imgwide are.
Just use the BBCode from flickr and paste the code directly into your post. It's under Share This | Grab the HTML/BBCode. Select the size you want, select BBCode and copy the code in the box.

I remember a thread on this site talking about the 16-45 and FA 35 having been discontinued, but I can't find it now.

Pentax Canada for one.
Pentax Canada - Historical & Discontinued
Pentax USA and UK don't list it as available. But they do list the 16-45 lens whereas Pentax Japan lists it as discontinued while Pentax Canada doesn't.
Interchangeable Lenses (Models discontinued in the Japanese market) : Digital Cameras : Products : PENTAX
Discontinued items must be different for the Asian, NA and European markets.

If anybody within EU is looking for one, take a look at what Cameranu in Holland offers: 239! By far the cheapest I've seen in in Europe. If I didn't have two kit zooms already, I would've probably gotten one already.

Or to be more accurate, it's listed under Interchangeable Lenses (Models discontinued in the Japanese market) .

Like the thread title says, "Just buy one". Sell a kit lens. 16mm fov, sharp from f4, great colours. You won't regret it.
