Re: Pentax FA 31mm/1.8 AL Limited performance

The 31mm focusses quickly and accurately when attached to my K-3, so I don't think there is any need to worry in that respect.  It is reasonably small and superbly built, and has a lovely rendition, but it is screw driven, so is audible when it focusses.  It is also very sharp.  I cannot speak for the Sigma which, from the reviews I have read, is a fine lens.  If you are happy with the results you are getting from the Sigma, perhaps you might consider another lens in the Limited line up, like the 77mm f1.8: this is a stunning portrait lens, or the 15mm f4.
