I am here again. FA 43/1.9 Limited Shoot Test

First, I am a FA Limited Fans, I mean, FA Limited may be not the best in Pentax lens Family, but definitely the most Pentax ones, just like the Summicron in Leica.

Here's a website test FA31 against 35summilux @ wide-open. I have to say, FA Limited is so gorgeous. And I love the vintage design.

Back to today's topic, I tested my FA43 today, just like I tested my FA31 the other day, see in this thread.

And bokeh is quite good when you stop down to f/4

Thanks for sharing Henry.
The 43 is certainly a commendable little lens, and a lovely paintbrush-type bokeh effect created in #3. Well done with this.
