Y'know, we have a serial number database with entries for all M37, M42, and PK-mount lenses. That data is probably a bit more comprehensive than this poll. There is an incentive: Enter your items there and you get reputation points!

I don't want the only 50 to be weather sealed and SDM. That's BS.
I agree that a cheap 50mm is something many expect from Pentax now. Not me, I'm done buying cheap plastic lenses, the EF 50/1.8 mk2 was the last drop. Terrible one, even worse than FA50/1.4.

The 50mm macro doesn't seem to be getting much love.
I do not really understand why. I like mine. Perhaps the construction puts people off, but still it is better built than 50/2.8 macro from Sigma.

That does surprise me too. Maybe they sell it in Japan, otherwise there is no reason to keep it in production.

Very well pointed out and for a little part this poll is a ambush since some of the data is to get from that database. Only thing is that the difference is that the database is filled with data over a longer periode off time and this poll is for at the time active members. Allso is this poll for lenses you own at the time, and is a correction for allready sold items.

But it is a good thing for everyone to visit:

Option "none" currently for me because
  1. the FA 50/1.4 is not in the list, and
  2. no one is responding to my "Wanted" post for the FA 77/1.8.

I cheated a bit by calling my Samsung Schneider-Kreuznach D-Xenon 100mm f2.8 a "D-FA 100mm Macro", since I believe they're the same lens. I used to own a FA43 (for a week), a DA70 (for a week), a DA35 macro (for a year), and an FA50 f1.4 (Which I shoulda kept). I didn't check 'em, of course.

My DA18-55 v1 is out of production but on your list.
My FA50/1.4 is in production but is not on your list.
My DA10-17 is the only production lens on your list.

All my other Pentax AF's are out of production: DA18-250, F35-70, FA100-300 (silver).
I won't buy any more DA's because they are unusable on my Pentax FF film cameras.
Also because I can't afford them. So I am quite happy with my many old MF lenses.

The 1,4 50 is also out of Production

Every time BH, Adorama, Pentax USA and Amazon runs out, Pentax sends them more. Samething with Henry's and ProDigital in Canada.

Edit: I guess technically everything is out of production except what is on the assembly line.

Well don't worry about the FA 50mm/f1.4 since this survey is giving some nice crossings to the R&D thread.

The thing that was a kind off a surprise to me wen I started this poll was that, when I deduct the two kitlenses, Pentax has only 24 lenses in production at the time. A real low number and even some off them aren't selling good enough (I think).

To many Sigma/Tammy's in your (not in mine, since I own 6 off the list and a FA*85mm) camerabags.

All poll entry's are still welcome!

This is definitely false.
The FA 50mm f/1.4 is readily available in my local camera stores where I am. These are not old stock but current Assembled in Vietnam ones.

When I look at your lenses you have some impressive lensline.

Ask yourself the question how a modern company can survive on customers using only legacy lenses?
