Oh dear, a quick search on amazon.jp has the FA31 for 595 new - I really didn't need to see that...
Thank god amazon canada doesn't have them for that price.

I have just got the Sigma 35mm and I must say that it is simply astounding. I have used Pentax 31mm a while ago, though it was not mine and I was just using it for a short time, but still, this Sigma 35mm is one damn fine lens.

Please post some pics!


Im really close to pulling the trigger on one but have been holding off. I'd really like to see some full size pixel peeping photos.

OK , where are the 31 ltd images to compare to?... one set of images from one lens does not a comparison make.

Please please publish the review for this lens Adam as there is alot of interest and debate around this lens and its performance against the existing pentax line-up
Pretty please?

Yes, I would like that to be done too. I think Adam has said before that a review for the lens will come up, though we do not have the slightest idea when. I can do a comparison shot if I have a FA 31mm with me
