Enjoyable photos from FA 31mm on K-3 - no?

On this spectacular forum there are a lot - a lot - of gems. But there seems to be one missing: forum member photos taken with the FA 31mm on K-3.

As you can see on Pentax Camera & Lens Sample Photo Search Engine - there are only seven (7) photos of the combination FA 31mm/K-3.

First of all this is a shame as both the camera and the lens are spectacular and in theory should perform very well together. I would really like to enjoy some good shots from that combination.

Secondly - and just as egoistic - I myself have the K-3 and will certainly buy the FA 31mm here in April during a visit to USA (where they bloom cheaper). Of course I'd like to see what this combination can really do at forehand - but actually mostly out of pure enjoyment.

The same goes for the DA* 55mm, which I also find adorable. This one only has two (2) photos posted taken with the K-3. What a shame!

So if you feel like it and have some nice shoots with these combinations, please do fill up the box

Thank you beforehand

Well its a relatively new camera. Also many ppl w 31s might be waiting to see if FF comes out (I certainly am). So there's that as well.

Also a lot of people links to flickr or similar so they won't even show up in the search.

The ones posted here and Sandy's pictures are enough to make me want a K-3.

I enjoyed this one. The FA31 + K3 is a fantastic combination.
