FA 35mm

This thing is awesome.

Managed to get a good condition 2nd hand copy.

Probably my favourite lens so far. Took it around a city and never found the focal length limiting .. must be about 53mm on my K7?

It is a great lens and is supposed to have nice color rendering too. I've yet to really see that difference though. I like mine too. Honestly it's a great lens for my film cameras too.

I like the characteristics of the bokeh, and the speed - F2 comes in handy.

Mine is pretty much resident on the K10D and as mentioned above, it very decent for 35mm film as well!

...on Fuji Acros 100...
