FA43 is soft wide open. It's quite sharp at f2.8, and really sharp across the frame at f5.6. I haven't used FA31 on DSLR to be certain but its AF is less consistent than FA43. This might have to do with the limitation of Pentax AF though as the AF gets less reliable the wider it does.
you should have your 43 checked my friend...
it's definitely not soft, and it's by all accounts sharper than 31ltd wide open.
