Hi there

Iam a s5 k5 shooter

both camers are great .I was trying to buy pentax fa31 to be a travel comb with k5 but this lens is highly priced and nearly the same xpro1 price ..so I decided not to go with this lens and instead of that I decided to buy the pro1 but Iam realy need a fuji lens give the same result or almost the fa31.

which one do you recommend!

thanks in advance!

Your choices are limited now, but the Fuji 35 mm f/1.4 is only $600 and probably as good as the Pentax 31 mm f/1.8. To be fair, that lens is expensive because it is for full frame, and also a bit more expensive focal length to make for an SLR camera.

I reviewed the lens here:

However, the Fuji is closer to 38 mm at the 8 foot or so focus distance I measured it at, so it will be noticeably tighter field of view than the 31 mm.

Here is the current roadmap:

Another option is you can use any of your K mount lenses on the Fuji with a K adapter, but they will be manual focus of course.
