Why is that?

As for the guesses, I'll keep it going for a bit more. It seems the portrait is bit easier to judge than the 2nd series...

Will let you guys know soon
Well I can only assume from seeing your other threads/post's and pm's, that you were looking to replace the 55 with something else.
Dont get me wrong about the 43, its a fantastic lens (I adore mine) but you already know what I said about the two and I gather you have the same conclusion.

OK, here is the correct order:
FA31: b 1
FA43: a 3
DA55: c 2

I thought it would be easier but the results were all over the map indeed

I know what you think regarding those two and my conclusion is somewhat similar.

I do agree on 43 being fantastic lens but I grew to like 55 more. My main thing with 55 is that on my K-7 the AF is neither as fast nor as sure footed as K-5 users report, although it's improvement on K10Df or sure in both respects.
I was more looking into getting lens to augment my line up for those situations when I'm not bothered to take out both 24 and 55 and keep swapping them. I tried 31 but the FOV is just not me...
The final conclusion is that I will probably try FA*28-70 and if it won't work out I'll start saving for K-5 .... will let you all know

If you cant find peace with the 31 or 43 to be the middle ground on the take only one lens trips, then the FA*28-70 might be the answer. Let us know how it goes

Also the K-5 has just had a huge price drop

Well the K-5 is 750 or therabouts in UK now. So today I pulled the trigger and FA*28-70 should be with my by Tuesday lunchtime
