Any news on the SMC Pentax-D FA 645 90mm F2.8 ?

No one seems to be talking about it, has anyone heard anything more about this lens since the original announcement ?

Not a peep. I would bet on a photokina launch though if it's going to be out this year

The DFA lens is already out- it was made available last year.

The new DA version (which basically just has a bigger hood) is the only one which will be available in the US. I believe that the first shipment has already arrived at B&H, but was sold out:
Pentax smc DA 645 25mm f/4 AL (IF) SDM AW Lens 26370 B&H Photo

Reviews of both have been posted already, in fact:

SMC Pentax-DA 645 25mm F4 AL [IF] SDM AW Reviews - 645 Wide-Angle Primes - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
