M 35/2 Vs. FA 35/2?

I've owned a FA 35/2 for several years now and am very fond of the lens.
In the last 2 years virtually all of my work has been in video production, and for that purpose the FA isn't so great.
The focus ring is too small, isn't damped and doesn't have as much travel as I'd like.

I'm considering selling this lens and purchasing a M 35/2, which I expect will be significantly better with regards my complaints about the FA.

Has anyone owned both of these lenses and compared them optically?
The reviews of the M/A 35 on PentaxForums are very good, but I'd like to here from someone with firsthand experience with both.
