Thanks for your prompt and clarifying answer, Ghelary, really helpful.
Since the 645D have an AF motor drive in the body (like some pro and semi-pro Nikon DSLRs) I think all should be okay now! :D

Well, I would say "discouraging", especially for people like me that are very interested to acquire a 645D but are at their "first experience" with this brand.

Thanks for your answers guys, really appreciated.

My work is almost studio/landscape at the moment so the 645D seems to be an ideal choice for me. Here you can see some of my recent works, especially in jewelry where I think this camera could really shine.
Just read the comment from Mr. Chambers about supposed hair scratches in an inner element of a brand new 55/2.8: it could be a very unlucky one of a kind coincidence but I'm really curious to see how it evolves and wondering if future, newly produced, lenses will be affected by similar QC issues.

I've asked for more infos here because an user over FM pointed me at some past issues with AF motors in some Pentax 35mm format lenses.

Well, afterall it seems I need to start to build up another lens line up. :D

BTW, this one would be my first Pentax! LOL

Hi all, this is my first post on the Pentax Forums so excuse me if I ask something silly. ;)

I'm here mainly for the new 645D because I feel it could be my next choice. I'm a (very) long time member of FredMiranda and I'm heavily invested in Nikon equipment so I've a couple of questions about Pentax lenses reliability.

My knowledge in Pentax things is limited but if my understanding is correct, the only one new lens specifically concieved for the 645D is the FA 55/2.8 SDM.

Now, I could be interested in the FAs 120/4 macro, 35/3.5 and 150/2.8 but they're all discontinued models so I should search and eventually buy them on the used market: I understand they're top performers but I would like to know if there are known reliability issues of any kind.

Thanks in advance for your kindness and time.

Ciao,

Emanuele
