645N with SMC PENTAX-A 645 ZOOM 1:4.5 45~85mm missing data imprint Question

As members know the 645N will imprint the film with the camera and lens settings.
I have a SMCPENTAX-A 645 ZOOM 1:4.5 45~85mm lens and the lens focal length (mm) just records as '--mm'. (the aperture setting does record)
I am wondering if this is particular to my lens or this lens type in general.
I have the SMCPENTAX-FA 645 ZOOM 1:45 80~160mm lens and this records all the data on the film including the focal length..
Any suggestions are most welcome - Thank you

The camera doesn't know the focal length of A-type lenses. For FA and D FA lenses, though, you'll get the focal length imprint.

Hello Adam:

Thank you for your quick message and kind explanation.
I have only shot 3 films with my newly acquired 645N, and the previous 2 were with 6x7 lenses which of course record no data.
The only other dedicated 645 lens I have is SMC PENTAX-A 645 MACRO 1:4 120mm
Thanks again -byes- bambi
