Re: Why use Pentax?

half of our parliamentarians should be thrown out.

Now there's something we could agree on!

You are correct, I did not realise 43mm is a FF lens. At 43mm however, I stand by my earlier assessment, it is an unusual FL.

Your earlier statement was not simply that it was an unusual focal length, but that Pentax's reason for that unusual focal length was to avoid being compared with other brands. I doubt anyone would dispute that it is an unusual focal length. But as Gerry already pointed out, 43mm is a true normal, as it most closely fits the diagonal of the 24x36 film frame.
