20 mm Lens Club also known as my "Good Lady"

As some of you already know, I recently acquired a new lady and she has been providing me with much pleasure!

With the prior consent of the mods I would like to start up a 20 mm Lens Club to see if there are other like minded folk out there.

Since I lack the patience to wait for all those big images to load,
I don't usually frequent the lens clubs,
but with A20/2.8, M20/4, and ST 20/4.5 all seeing regular use,
you could probably count me as "like minded."
After all, 20mm on APS-C is the angle of the FA 31 Ltd on its native format.

Also, will you have a nasty-looking bouncer at the door to keep out the DA 21s?

The link to my new lady is only a small one.

Would someone please "like" a thread in this club, as all the other lens clubs have likes except this one and it's feeling a bit naked without.

I can't "like" my own thread, as much as I like my 20 mm.

I like it. But I think I prefer the 20mm equivalent (13mm on APS-C or 20mm on a 24x36 camera)

Thanks for the "like" dragon132312, I wondered where you'd got too.

It was yourself that got me started on this 20 mm malarkey.

Hi all,
Thank you for letting me know about the 20mm lens club, I think the 20mm FA is a great lens and still even if it's a 30mm and the K20D it's still great. I'm
hoping Pentax/R will make a Full Frame to take advantage of all the great Full Frame lenses they made.

Does my FA 20-35 count if I only use pics shot @ 20mm?
I wanted an FA 20 but they are so damn expensive now!

I won't tell, but they are expensive I paid $460.00 for mine off ebay and I think it's sharper than the 20mm Nikkor f2.8 I had and sold
