Info needed

I'm very new with the photography, and trying to drink all the info I could get;

But one point, that I'm fascinated when I first see this lenses,

SMC FA* 28-70 2.8 AL
SMC FA* 80-200 2.8 ED (IF)
SMC FA* 200 2.8 ED (IF)
SMC FA* 300 2.8 4.5 ED (IF )

But there is no such information on the net about Fa star series, is anyone has experience with them and help me with explanation; what are the production dates, are they still in production, what kind of lenses are they and are they usefull with Dslr(K10D)

Thank you in Advance.

I believe all the lenses you list are out of production. They are available used. All will work just fine on the digitals, with no restrictions whatsoever. They might even work better as they will be working with the sharpest 2/3 of the lens coverage area. The vignetting will be less, for sure.
