The FA31 iq is even better than the FA77 IMHO, and the focal length far more useful.
Bold. The FA31 is on my wishlist!

My next purchase is either the Cosina 55/1.2 or the VL 58/1.4.
Then DA*55 for when I need AF and weatherseal for outside shoots, and FA31.

After this, it'll be a super long telephoto for my African Safari...

I reviewed the Cosina and the Voigtlander on my blog. I like the Voigtlander a lot. The Cosina is very special too, but it is weak in strong light and produces strong LoCA.

Hin is selling his Cosina+adapter, used, for 500$. I can get a new VL at CameraQuest for 50$ less. It's probably a better deal.

I'll compare more shots. I don't want both. I think the Cosina has a fantastic bookeh, though.
