We had a really beautiful autumn this year here in Switzerland. These pictures were all made on the same foggy and rainy morning in the woods.

I took a class from a photographer once who liked to say: "The worse the weather, the better the photos." I think he was right! (to a point of course)

Me, too. I might even spring for the full retail of such a lens if it was really good, eliminated some of its distortion, and similar in size/weight to the current one. Would love to see the 45 revisited as well.

K-1 or 645D? I did it (not the sensible choice)

I took the old standard screen from my original pentax 645 film camera(first version), snapped off the tab to the side as they have a different position to the later pentax 645's. Using a nail file I smoothed out the remaining squared off sections at the base of the tab.

This is an outstanding piece of information. :) I'm going to try out your solution myself.

Would you happen to know the actual Pentax designation of the screen you modified ?

I own both the 645D & Z. If I could keep only one it would be the D for the uniqueness of that sensor and having purchased it new would lose too much on the deal compared to the Z which I purchased used. I was very happy with the D & the only reason I bought the Z was that I put a bid on a 1000 shot Z,55 & 90mm lens no else decided to bid on. As for the focus screen, when I bought my 645D I only had manual focus lenses and wanted a more accurate manual focusing experience than the standard screen provides. I searched in vein for the AB- 82 or whatever its called split screen version. I did come across the all microprism version for a reasonable price but decided to try something else first. I took the old standard screen from my original pentax 645 film camera(first version), snapped off the tab to the side as they have a different position to the later pentax 645's. Using a nail file I smoothed out the remaining squared off sections at the base of the tab. This is important as the first time I tried the old screen on my new D the focus was slightly out. Upon investigation the screen wasn't sitting perfectly flat on the holder and I thought I had just hacked a screen for nothing and wasted my time. Turns out I had not filed quite enough of the tab base square section off to let it sit in the surrounding holder correctly. Once I had removed all traces of the tab, it fitted perfectly and presto, I had a combined split/ microprism screen that I was use to and did make manual focusing considerably easier and a lot more enjoyable experience. You have to remember to put the screen facing the same way as it came out of your film camera as you no longer have the positioning tab to prevent from putting it upside down in the camera. Also no longer can you handle the screen with tweezers via the tab so I just used new cotton gloves & handled from the edges & a good blow down with a rocket blower before you re-install. I still have it in my pentax 645D now as I tend to use that camera more with manual focus lenses and the Z more with AF lenses. Only downside is a slightly darker finder but I can always change back to the original screen but haven't been tempted to even when using AF lenses. Metering ,AF and all functions remained unchanged.

Exactly ! That's why I love my Bower and Sammy 14mm so much on the K-1. It really didn't matter if it was the DA or the DFA....its still a 25mm lens that's very hard to come by.
Honestly....if there was something a bit wider for the 645Z....I would have started there.

I also got one 2 weeks ago from Japan. It is the best lense I ever owned, and I had a bunch of Hasselblads before.
Sadly it's not exactly my prefered focal length.

I will put together my infos here:

I just got mine, it really does look brand new, not even a spec of dust under the lens cap.

Just took a few shots and everything is working as it should, AF, SR, Zoom and Focus rings rotate smoothly.

I'm gonna try to take some test shots to check edge to edge uniformity, but so far it looks fantastic.

No experience FA35, but it is sharper than the A35 and better contrast. Good as DA28-45. This is 100% crop of the previous picture in a critical area.
