New owner of 645D

Hi all
just bought a 645D and the 55mm kit lens.
Looking to hear from members who have used FA lenses on the 645D and with what results....
I am wondering whether the FA 150mm and FA 200mm work equally well on the 645D.
Also whether to buy the new 25mm or save money with an older FA35mm
thanks

Hi,
I am also new to the forum with a 645d. Some days ago I got the FA35 and the FA150mm. Both work fine on the Camera. The FA45 is at least wide open much weaker.

Hi H Lux
Did you get the 55mm with it?

Yes I got the 55mm and the 75 mm in a bundle with the camera. Normally I prefer a bit wider like 45, but I like the pics with the 55 better.
I have 35, 45, 55, 75, 120 macro, 150 and 300/5.6
Having tried these I would say 35, 55 and 120 if you need macro or 150 if you don't, is a good combo.

The 55 seems pretty good focus is quick enough I have bought the 25 too but as yet have not tried the older FA AF lenses

The older FA lenses Focus a bit slower and are noisier, but are ok. 55 is up to date.

I just bought a Pentax 645, but I'm going to be using film and scanning the images. If it looks like it might pay for itself, maybe someday I'll be able to upgrade it. I'll be following your adventures.
