What is the widest Pentax lens for the 645 Mount?
It seems to be the Pentax SMC DA 645 25mm f/4 AL? (Equivalent to ~19mm in '35mm' format)

I may review the new 645Z along the some lenses covering my most used FL.
That would be the 25mm f/4 AL and new 33-55 f/4.5 AL zoom. (19mm to 45mm '35mm' equiv.)
This set-up is cheap when comparing to the MF competition but still would cost about $16k.


The 25 is the widest...and among the most expensive Pentax lenses! I'm not sure how good that 33-55 zoom will be. The 45-85 is highly rated (as well as the 80-160) but not so the 33-55 from what I can tell. Ricoh has a newer wide angle zoom on their lens roadmap due soonish so I would expect the existing primes (particularly the FA 35mm and of course the 25mm, which is a newer lens) to be better until then.
