The Lens Hood of the DA*55 is Discontinued, So..

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/594342-USA/Pentax_38764_PH_RBH_Lens_Hood_for.html

Quoted, "Discontinued -

  • Important Notice! This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available."
So, WHEN would be the lens also to be discontinued? And then the (whole) DA line? :-o

If not, why the support of this top of the line DA* lens is needed to be stopped so soon and so early? :-(

Back to what I am thinking actually, I believe Pentax do have a serious plan, that is, to migrate to Full Frame. I guess the lens will still be in production, but the lens hood just won't work anymore and they are now making a new one (with a wider angle-of-view coverage)! :-)
