SMC M 40mm f/2.8 vs SMC FA 43mm f/1.9

Hi all,

Interested in trying out shooting film lately. I got lucky, and I was given the Pentax ME as a gift by a relative.

The ME comes with the M 50mm f/1.7. Now, I'm actually partial to the 40mm-ish focal length, so I'm intrigued by the two lenses referenced in the title.

Does anyone own both and would be able to comment on the comparison? In particular, is there a noticeable image quality difference between f/5.6-f/11?

How about at f/2.8?

Many thanks in advance,
