I've included these photos to show what to expect from a FA31 on full frame. All these pics are uncropped with no vignetting added or taken away. Each picture was taken on Kodak Ektar 100, handheld, using a Pentax MZ-S.

f/1.8



f/2.4

Brilliant! I actually like the vignetting wide open and its still a marvelous lens. It is also a breath of fresh air to see it used to its FF potential for a change
