Default Pentax 645N lens choice

Have a 45mm manual focus and a nice 80-160 AF. The 45 doesn't seem as sharp
as the 80-160. Lens looks fine (no mold etc.).

Is it possible the newer 45mm fa lens has improved optics over the manual
version? I read that the 45 and the 35mm were supposed to be nice lenses.

thanks in advance.

Dean

I own the 45mm af lens and the 45-85mm zoom f4.5 and feel that both of
them are very sharp.

No. The A and the FA 45/2.8 lenses are the same optics. The 45-85 is
sharper.
