DA 35, as compared FA ?

Good morning, I saw some photos taken with the DA * 35 macro,
In particular, the photo of a leaf, yellow, fall on a wooden bench.
Gentilmeente Now I ask you, what can replace the FA * DA 35macro, both on K20 that on film??

FA * 31 or 43?
43 is cheaper than 31.
but the 43 makes a good photo?
Or better to wait two months, and raise the money for a FA * 31?

Thanks

Just FYI, the DA 35mm f.28 macro is not on the DA* league (with SDM focus mechanism). Its just DA limited series

They are all great lenses, although none of them are "*" lenses. See the Lens Review section of this site for more opinions on specifics, but basically, there is not quality reason to choose betwene them - mostly just a question of which focal length suits you best, whether you care more about faster aperture or macro capability, etc.

Thanks for your reply, yes, all these lenses are not STAR *
MA limited, I apologize.

The fact that macros do not indispensable, just looking for a macro lens like the DA 35, for its color quality, and the little distorsone.

Since I can not buy two lenses, I have to better understand who is approached between 43 and 31, the qualities that I mentioned above for 35.
This factor makes me insecure and I can not choose between 43 and 31.
43'll pay half of 31, but I would not be in the hands of a lens that disappoints me.

The focal lunnghezza is not important, but the distortion did, and the fact that it could approach which results in very well.


Thanks

I think both of these lenses are excellent. The question to me is really whether you want a lens that is a stop faster and a little longer, or one that can shoot macro. The disortion should really be minimal with either of these lenses.
