Instruction manual FA31mm & FA lenses

I am looking for the manual of the FA 31 mm and FA lenses in PDF format. It seems that the Pentax Imaging website link (http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/FA_FA%20J_F%20%20Lenses_Manual_2008.pdf) is broken.

I wonder if someone would know another URL/link.

Thank you in avance.

Manel Brand,

Thank you for the assistance

I am looking for information to set the FA31mm Ltd in MF. I cannot find a switch or focusing ring (like on the FA*) for using the lens in MF.

Has someone used the FA31mm in MF ? You set the camera body mode to MF, and ... what ? do you need to set the lens to MF? (I would not want to damage the new lens because of my ignorance.)

Thank you in advance for your help...

You set the body on MF and... you focus by turning the focusing ring...

Zay, Wheatfield,

Many thanks for the info. I guessed so but this differs from my Tamron 90mm for which you need to select both the body and the lens to MF.

Thanks again
