The pouches for the FA limited used to be different colors. I'm sure someone else can offer more details, but I know the FA43 at one point had a brown leather pouch and the FA31 had a red pouch.

Here's a link to axl's post which includes pictures of those two bag colors.

The 31 Limited came with a red pouch originally. The 43 with a brown one and the 77 with a green pouch.

Maybe the "pink" bag is a faded (or poorly photographed) red bag

I'm inclined to agree with dgaies. After all, he has experience photographing red bags.

Ha! Yeah, that's the one. Thanks for posting that--I couldn't find the post and thought people would .... well, wonder.

However, I thought the red bag only shipped with the silver 31, whereas the black limiteds always had black bags. Maybe not?

I withdrew the ad, so that's why you couldn't find it.

Nobody wanted a bag quite that bright

That "red" pouch on this eBay ad is fake and not the original:

Pentax SMC FA 31mm F/1.8 Limited Lens 27075051133 | eBay

The real one is darker and has 31/1:1.8 written under Pentax. (This is my Fa31/1.8 in the photo)

The proper Pentax "red" pouch came with the first batch of MIJ FA31/1.8's and most of those were silver. (I believe there may be some black ones that came with the red pouch) The s/n of these lenses that came with the red pouch were under 0019999, check the serial number db on the forum)

Phil.
