new K20D owner in waiting...first post :-)

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first AF lens.....the FA 35/2.0. Anyone have much experience with this lens? Just curious. I am excited to get to use it both as a 35m on my film camera and and 52mm on my K20D!

Congrats on the K20D - you'll love it... look here for a good discussion about that lens (but never believe you should buy a lens just because jsherman999 posts good photos from it - he can do that using a lens made by putting plastic wrap on both ends of a toilet paper tube ).

You are going to love the FA 35...

As to Jay's secret to getting great shots with any lens.... LIGHTING, and a little deal that he made with the DEVIL!

it's a great lens, it is very sharp at F2, good choice, my favorite lens for indoor and low light. I completely abandoned FA 50/1.4 and sold my F28/2.8 once I bought FA 35/2 and used it for a few days.

I love it wide open
