Given the specs as requested by the OP, the FA 35mm f/2 is probably the closest comparison. This lens is still very good into the corners wide open (as is to be expected for a full frame), and considerably more solid in build than the f/2.4. It balances very nicely with the K-50.

See a good review of this lens here. I have a copy and find it almost as good as my FA 31mm Limited, although it isn't as solidly built.
