my vote, the FA 31mm limited

SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited Reviews - FA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Ok, maybe the 77mm ou any 85mm prime are better for portrait with bokeh, maybe the 43mm or any 50mm is more versatile, and the built in lens hood make this lens bigger dans the other classic limited primes.

But, this is my favorite lens, as i ofen shoot parties with it in low light, perfect for group pictures in ambiant light in disco and bars, and i can't wait for them to reopen. The sigma 35mm F/1.4 has more light but the old screw drive autofocus deal better on dark situations, avoiding lot of missing focuses I encounter with the Sigma.

My second choice would have been a HD D FA like the 50 or the 70-200, but these things are too bigs, they stay in my home when I travel for that reason. I am hoping Pentax will come back on tiny, solid, luminous primes. I can deal with F/1.8 for compactness.
