Our chief protagonist felt the FA to be one of his sharpest.

I'm kicking myself because there was one that just completed, cheap, on eBay @ 1pm EDT and I forgot about it and could've probably won it! Grrr...

Optically they are the same (M, A, F and FA) with different mechanical construction only. That's all. All very good lenses. (I had M50/1.7.)
