CP+ Pentax interview in DSLR Magazine

Google Traductor


New 645D lens focal lenght still being discussed. It could be an 80mm or 100mm lens.

FA 645 lenses can be sold again in Europe. The welding components have been changed to comply with the EU regulations.

Mirrorless is coming (this was already known).

The complete production for the new silver DA Limiteds was sold in 24 hours.

Now all we need is a date! I wonder if they will announce anything on World Pentax Day?

So if I read into this interview:

From google translate so maybe some error in translation:

This raises our question about the Pentax 645 lenses prior to the analog era, goals that are perfectly usable on the 645D, but not optimized for it ...
We know that for some years, Pentax 645, and 67 as well as other many other brands, no longer can be sold in Europe because of new rules allowed in welding metals and other components. We discussed at that time that the rule we looked a little absurd for devices that could benefit, unlike the mobile phone, a lifetime of tens of years ...
Now those objectives "old" who also bear electronic circuits and motors approach with corresponding welding, could come back in Europe?

And the answer:

The possibility of a positive response results in satisfaction of course Mr. Kawauchi, who with a smile full of certain complications and sense of humor we answer that .. "if now we have the seal, with the permission "....
Good news, then, because while they develop and produce new optical, focal exist for which no equivalents exist yet in the D-FA version.

Then just a wild analyses from my site:

Could this mean that old design glass from K-mount being put back in production again? I'm looking at the F* and FA* dsigns that are currently missing in the lens line-up!
