There are only 2 things that will make people complain:
1: If they change something.
2: If they don't change anything.

Biggest thing will probably be replacing the Pentax name and sticking Ricoh's name prominently on the lens...

Well the coating did change over the years, so making it new with HD coating is just logical.

Maybe somebody will start a "Why I Won't Buy a 31Ltd" thread.

I Doubt that HD coatings could improve upon the already excellent flare resistance of the FA31:


Pentax K5IIs - SMCP-FA31mm f/1.8 ASPH Limited.

I had to lower the contrast in this image substantially to get the look I wanted

Very interesting comment!

Do you have any available reference for this?
I've searched a bit for the source, but cannot find it. It could be that I misremember. It could also be that this came up in a Hirakawa Jun-related discussion and as such don't actually relate to the 31, but the other two FA limiteds. I'm pretty sure I didn't just imagine the whole thing.

Any update to the old film Fa's should be met with euphoria.

1 it means they won't be canceled
2 it means FF is approaching
3 any FA limited updated lens will exist in the new lens line up.

ergo any lens not being updated ta ta , goodbye see ya.
