Two versions. A* 85 f1.4 and FA* 85 f1.4
Both are outstanding lenses. They are different characters though.
I didn't try the A* enough, only a couple occasional shots, but I very like mine FA*.
It's sharp, but it treats skintones with care (unlike recent sigma 85, which is just sharp). Here's couple of shots, I didn't make any retouching.

Actually this one is a blooper: don't forget to stop down enough to have both faces in focus

nice work. Question: the three batches of this lens all start with serial numbers starting with the number 3 according to the lens data here on pentax forum. What about the series that starts with nr 7. Several members have posted serials starting with 7, of which batch i have one.
