Re: Pentax FA 31mm/1.8 AL Limited performance

Hi,

I own the 31mm (not the Sigma 35mm) and I'm very pleased with it on my K5.  I haven't seen it on FF.  If I have a minor grumble it's that it can flare.  You're really seeking a side by side comparison, and I can't think of two lenses where you're less likely to get one.  They're both very expensive and I doubt many people would buy both because the FLs are so similar.  Given the excellent reports on the Sigma there's probably no point in changing over unless you want to save a bit of weight.

Cheers, Rod
