I own a Pentax 645 120mm f/4 macro, with the images I have obtained from it I don't see anything wrong with it to justify a remake.
The lack of inner focusing makes it difficult if not impossible to convert to SDM drive; the lens extends 5,5cm while focusing. In addition whather sealing will be most useful in such a lens as it is ideal for outdoor macro use. Pentax did redesign the A* 200/4 macro into the FA* 200/4 IF macro with a completely new optical design inspite of the fact that there was nothing wrong with the old lens optically...
The lens shown has a front diametre that makes me certain it is no faster than F:4; hence, a macro lens...
