I have both a lowepro nature trekker and a KATA HB 207 that I use for my P645 outfit. For me, the KATA is best. It carries as much or more than the LP, and is lighter by a few pounds. Also has nice touches like the bright yellow interior that makes it easier to find things. For travelling through airports, you can also purchase an accessory that converts it to a rolling backback.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for joining and posting some shots. I've long admired your work, having seen some of it on the Pentax website, and other photo websites.

Warren... it was definately good luck that you found the lens hood at Japan Exposures. When I needed this hood for for my 55-110 last year, Pentax USA said they couldn't get it. I eventually found one at KEH, but only after a long search.

I have this lens. Extremely sharp and contrasty. Lightweight (relatively) and compact, too. After I bought this lens, I sold off my 45-90 and 80-160. It is sharper than both, imo, and the range is perfect. My field outfit is now the 35mm 3.5, 55-110, 120 macro, and 150-300.

I shoot landscapes so the f5.6 speed is not a problem.

So regarding Pentax 645d lenses, do we expect there will be

a: A new lineup of new designs or tweaked older designs (with more anti-reflective coating, for example)

b: Another production run of the latest model Pentax FA zooms and primes, like the 35mm, 33-55, 55-110, and 150-300

c: No new lenses or production... we make do with what is out there.

I have this lens. It is light, and very sharp. I tested it against the 150/2.8 with a 15x loupe on Velvia and could see no difference. I use it with the MLU capability on my 645NII to get the most out of it, although others would probably argue this is unncessary.

I see this lens is listed as discontinued. Although new stock may still be available overseas (Asia, for me), I wonder if Pentax will start another production run of this and other recent FA zooms such as the 55-110, and 33-55?
