The FA 31 is one of my favorite lenses on my K5 IIs. The color, contrast and bokeh is amazing. However, in this picture, I fail to see how it shows the FA 31 greatness. Any half decent lens will be good at the center at f/5.6.

My sole intention was not to show the greatness of the FA, but the sharpness with the combination of IIs, FA31, f5.6 and some stretch in LR. I have taken about eighteen hundred frames with the IIs, but yet only sixty with the FA31 of which none of these pics match your criteria of showing off the greatness of the lens... Most pics so far has been with my zoom's as well as my 28mm, 50mm and 105mm.

I agree with in what you say of course
