Hi all,

Got this info from Cosina this morning:

The following screw mount lenses will be discontinued production:

* 1.7/35mm (S)
* 1.7/35mm (B)
* 3.5/28mm (S)
* 3.5/28mm (B)

Please place your last order if you wish to get hold of these lens. Once run out, you might have to get it from the second hand market!

The 35mm/f1.7 is a very highly rated lens. Some of the excellent series that I personally like very much is taken by Mr Peter Chou here .

Regards,
Chiif

Why would they want to do that?? :(

anyway I didn't know that they have both S and B mount for each lens?

I'm looking forward to get one for my future R4 :p

Chiif, if they are discontinued, then will they prepare the replacement? especially with 28mm Focal Length?

Hi Igor,

The 28mm/f1.9 & 35mm/f2.5 PII & Classic will still be available.

They wanted to cut down on the duplicate focal length models which are not selling too well. Personally, I think the 35mm/f1.7 is one of the best selling models. The only downside is the side of the lens, which makes the PII & Classic looks more attractive.

Regards,
Chiif
