Re: Pentax FA 31mm/1.8 AL Limited performance

You're going to get some great replies on this one!

The FA31 is one of the most respected lenses in the lineup, it has achieved.. wait for it.... LEGENDARY status.

It is one of the "Three Amigos" the FA31,FA43 and FA77 Limiteds.  I don't have the 31 myself, but I have the other two, and they are fantastic lenses and all have an amazing look and feel to the shots taken with them.  The 43 and the 77's only fault is that they suffer a little from fringing, I believe that this a consequence of the same design decisions that make the pictures look awesome but I'll let others that have first hand experience advise you if the 31 also behaves like this.  In any case lightroom does a good job of neutralising it in most cases.

I don't believe I have ever heard anyone say that they are disappointed in the 31.
