FA and A 20mm 2.8 comparison and examples

Hey all - there are a fair number of reviews of both of these, but nothing that I could find in the lens example images threads. I've been planning to pick up the A version and am just looking for some example shots of either of these, particularly night shots. Also interested in any comparisons from folks that have used/own both.
AF is not important to me and from what I understand they are built very similarly. I am largely curious about the focus ring action/handling on the FA version and size weight comparisons. AF would of course be nice if I use the latter version on a digital body, but again it simply is not a priority for me whatsoever. It may come down to which I can source more easily/cheaply for a good copy, dependent slightly on any answers here.

Please pipe up if you've shots or first-hand thoughts on the SMC-A 20mm 2.8 or SMC-FA 20mm 2.8.
Cheers
