I know it's becoming a 5d2 world but Jezz that's such of lump of plastic.     I know it does a lot, I know it's a good price, but I love dedicated equipment that has a professional purpose and I can prove it because I had two Canon 50mm 1.4's and one Nikon 28mm lense that met their final resting place in the middle of some field, 30 yards "away" from my set.

now that's speaking with some gusto! Bravo.

Sorry if I'm being thick, but where do you see the price? If it's what you report, that's a seriously problem. I can get Leica glass for that kind of money.

The fact that it's a 25mm and covers the 645 format makes me believe that the price is indeed very good:

28mm Hasselblad :   4390 US$ (do not cover the circle, needs digital corrections)
28mm Phase one :  4490 US$

Leica don't have a truly equivalent lens since the 35mm is very fast, and far most expensive as expected from the aperture.

Of course the Pentax is sold as  a very low  cost entry to the medium format word. So that hurts  expectations.

Just  my take
