I was thinking much the same thing, but the OP did specify compact. The 31/1.8 is a big, heavy horse of a lens. The same thing with an APS-C image circle should be much smaller. For that matter, my A35/2 is about half the size and 1/3 the weight.

Well, Sigma makes the 30 f/1.4

Pity it isn't made by Pentax.

Alternatively, the OP could wait for full frame and shoot the FA 43 f/1.9 which would yield an equivalent focal length.

For myself, the 43 is too short on the 35mm format. Maybe it's because I shot with a 50mm lens during my early learning photography period, but I really like the AOV that a slightly long standard lens gives.

Also, that doesn't solve the issue that Pentax doesn't make a fast standard for the APS-C format.
