The FA 31 is not wide on APS-C.

It gives you what a normal 50mm would have given you on a film camera.

If you want wide, you can only consider the FA 31 if you shoot film or Pentax releases an FF camera (which won't be in the next couple of days...).
I know this, so perhaps I used the term wrongly. I should have said "wider" lens. Since I'm currently using the 35mm f/2.4 for landscapes, with decent results, I figured that the 31 would have been wider by some small margin.
I did not properly try the 16-45 just yet.

Guess now after my dream bargain failed I'd stick to the 15mm limited which was my initial target... and maybe wait a bit to see how the new HD 15 will perform, and maybe also for the Black Friday?

There are worse consolation prizes than the 15mm.

And I'm not so sure about the HD version... I'm curious if the rounder blades will affect what is one of the greatest aspects of the 15mm: the 'starburst' effect. Also, how could you improve flare resistance in that lens?

I just hope somebody will test the new HD 15 as fast as possible !
