Good little article.

But seeing those photos of silver K-1 with some great FA* lenses on it made me wonder what happened to Pentax in 2004, when all those fine FA* lenses like the:

- FA★ 24mm F2,
- FA★ 28-70mm F2.8,
- FA★ 80-200mm F2.8,
- FA★ 85mm F1.4,
- FA★ 200mm F2.8,
- FA★ 200mm F4 Macro,
- FA★ 250-600mm F5.6,
- FA★ 300mm F2.8,
- FA★ 300mm F4.5,
- FA★ 400mm F5.6, and
- FA★ 600mm F4

were discontinued?

Just imagine if those lenses had been kept in the Pentax catalogue, even in limited production, with progressive updating of lens coatings, AF motors etc ...

That would be the greatest news from Pentax! A new lens roadmap with all the FA* revamped! That would make my well controlled LBA to explode again!!!
