Besides the obvious, FA31MM Limited,

What other top performers work with the IIs?

Not sure what is better the 70mm DA limited or the 77mm FA Limited,

I live at F5,6-F8

Thanks

I have the FA 77mm and it is a superb lens.  Produces beautiful colors.  Probably my favoirte.  I also am considering the FA 31mm too.

I have pretty much switched over to using primes only for my K-5 and K-01.  Cannot help but imagine the FA 31mm would be excellent wiith the IIs

What about Samyang 14mm/f2.8  and 24mm f1.4 for those landscapes and wide angles?

Hi,

I've had  the 70mm Ltd for a year  and the image quality and colour rendering still amaze me. The build quality is also something that makes the lens a pleasure to use.
