Pentax Threatens World Economy with Renegade Metal 43/1.9 Autofocus Lens

Just found this on Cameraquest. It's probably been there for quite some time, but visiting that site is like visiting a flea market, and I mean that in a good way...

"Throwing all caution and regard of worldwide financial stability to the winds, Pentax introduced the ALL METAL barreled FA 43/1.9 LIMITED lens in September 1997. The odd choice of focal length is said to be the exact diagonal of 35mm film....the theoretically perfect "normal" lens. Specifications: optical design of 7 element in 6 groups, 49mm filter size, weight of just under 6 oz with hood attached."

That was a spin-off from my conspiracy-theory copywriting days.
