Both my FA 35 f/2 and my DA 35 f/2.8 Ltd are smc version.
Although I have only just recently acquired the Ltd., I am super impressed with this lens (however, both have superb image quality).
If I understand correct, the HD versions may be better if you're after starburst effects, because the HD version cuts down substantially on flare and ghosting which may occur while shooting for starbursts, but I have no personal experience here.
Thanks for the information

The obvious lens if you need starbursts, an aperture ring and FF is the FA31.

Please don't mention the 31!!!! Would love to get one but try my best not to think about it

Superb video. Hadn't seen it before. Shows how much work goes into making Limited lenses. Beautiful craftsmanship.
