40 or 43mm

Hi folks,

I am struggeling realhard on deciding to buy the 40 or 43.
I like the size of the 40mm and the F/1.9 on the other. But either is of major importance. Probably the IQ is. What do you say in this matter?

When making my decision, it came down to cost. Only heard good things about the 40, and have the M version already. The great high ISO capability of the Pentax bodies made the additional speed of the 43 a non-issue.

If it's any help in your decision, here's a photo with the 43mm Limited. No PP except resizing for this site.

40/43

Thank you for advice and nice pictures. I ended up with the 40mm and a parking ticket. Why? I dont know for shure, probably the size, and edge to edge sharpness.
