There's also something a bit strange in that one... Sure the FA's aren't typically the best aperature lens' but they are usually the best optically, and most have the marco feature tacked on to them as well.

Plus it is to my understanding that the FA's all have significantly better quality control/construction - even though they are a bit louder.

The current Pentax lens prosepctus at photokina does not list any FA lenses.
pentax.jp still lists the FA Limiteds and the FA50/1.4 (and even a couple of zooms).
The FA limiteds are even on the road map.

We've had so many false "the FA limiteds are gone" stories that it's getting tiresome, and basing it on non-occurence in a brochure is not enough.

And they are still listed at Pentaximaging.com and are even in stock on the Pentax Webstore.

The FA Limiteds while being very expensive are also the cream lenses of Pentax. I doubt they'd suddenly discontinue a premium item line that actually still sells.
