You just made me go out and buy this lens......heading for the Marketplace as soon as I post this! I was already thinking about it, but this thread (especially that 2nd image) just sent me over the edge...
It's a great lens...this is the reason I wrote what I wrote under the lens review section. 'Every Pentax owner who doesn't have the FA31 has to own this to know the true greatness of Pentax ownership'. I was overstating of course, but there is certainly something so amazing about Pentax primes in general.....

When I first got the lens it was very mediocre, so I was sort of surprised, then realized the focus was off, so I downloaded the Russian AF debug mode for my K10D. These images were taken with +160 AF adjustment. Once I did that, it easily became my favorite lens. So, watch out for this.

The only issue is it's inability to focus anything close (can be rather frustrating)
, but being so sharp can easily be cropped.
