thanks

Cheers for posting the link for me, I don't know how to do that. But when people do nice things for others I find it's customary to just say thanks.

It's a bit late isn't it? Seeing as it's not made any more?

"Pentax are probably the leading proponents of modern-design fixed-focal length lenses, with their range of compact 'pancake' lenses and 'Limited' series high quality primes being the envy of users of other systems". Cool.

Still being made I'm afraid.
The DA* is a different lens designed for portraits.
the FA version will be around for awhile longer.

Cheers

There is a DA*55/1.4 already, don't think they'd do anything about the FA50/1.4 anytime soon ...

Perhaps the most telling part of the review is the notation at the bottom of each page:

"Unfortunately none of our merchants are currently listing this product"

They are referring to the merchants that advertise on their site, like US1Camera, ritz, buzzbillions, and a host of other rather dubious vendors. Still in stock at BH and other reliable sources.
