| Re: New Pentax 645D 2014 Medium Format to be announced |
Production of these lenses ended years ago, but Pentax probably still has a warehouse full of old stock.
Pentax Canada dumped all of their remaining 645 lenses and accessories a few years ago, and a few big stores like Henry's bought all the inventory for pennies on the dollar - only to watch it collect dust.
Are you saying that Henry's purchased the 25mm lens for pennies on the dollar and leaves the price at $5,000 while nobody buys it - does that really make business sense?
He's referring to the older, FA lenses. The 25mm is new and currently in production - made in Vietnam. The current production lenses are the 25, 55 and 90mm Macro as far as I'm aware (all the lenses introduced since the 645D started shipping).
