FA31 and K-7

I know DA lenses can read on K-7.
I have FA 50 f1.4 and it can't read some on K-7. I am curious if FA31 can read whole or some on K-7.
Thanks

I don't follow what you mean by "it can't read" but FA lenses should be fully compatilble with all of Pentax DSLRs.

Maybe the contacts on the FA 50 need cleaning?

Oh no

Can FA read Distortion Correction and Lat-Chromatic-Ab Adj? My FA50 cant' read them. If FA31 can read them?
DA Lenses can read everying on K-7. Is that Clearly?

Download firmware version 1.03 for the K-7.

It allows Lens Correction (Distortion, Lateral chromatic aberration) for the following FA limited lenses:
smc PENTAX-FA 31mmF1.8AL Limited
smc PENTAX-FA 43mmF1.9 Limited
smc PENTAX-FA 77mmF1.8 Limited

Ok, I see what you're asking. As far as I know, the only FA lenses that are supported by the lens correction feature are the FA limiteds. So the FA 50 isn't supported, but the FA 31 should be. Support for the FA limits was added with the firmware v1.03 update so you should be good to go with the FA 31.

BTW, you have the ugliest and most irritation signature I've ever seen... No offense, but I doubt you meant it to be like that.

Hahahah... I didn't want to say it, because I thought the same thing. I am sure it wasn't supposed to be so large.

Size it down man!
