More from the FA43. Between my new job and school, I was barely able to squeeze time in for photography when I got home today. My craving to go on a photowalk is pretty itchy now, gotta wait another week before I can have a good, long, day with my camera though.

After selling CaNikons all day long, it's nice to just come home to my sweet little K-x with the FA43 mounted on it...

Thanks TOUGEFC! though the name's Helon and I am, surprisingly, a male. I know, the name's a bit of a curse

Welcome Mike! And what a nice photo to start with.

This guy waited for me to switch to my FA77 from a wide angle. Soon after he flew off.

That is a nice photo Mike, I like the sight line. What is your intitial impression with the 43 coming from the 15 and 70, if you don't mind me asking?

VuXY, very nice as usual.

hmm, well it is still early but i find 43mm a very comfortable FL to use. This lens has excellent sharpness at f/1.9 which is very impressive. I really like the IQ of the 70, it wows me, but this 43 is right up there. It does not have the best bokeh i've ever seen, but it is not unpleasant either. i am very pleased with the lens.
