50/0.9 would be cool
Yes it would. I'm still scanning the Edmund Scientific site to see if any are available. But wait! Here Double Convex Lenses (DCX) are US$3 lenses including a 50mm FL., 38mm diameter -- that's f/1.3 for THREE BUCKS!! Of course you'll have to mount it on a bellows (use a M39-M42 ring with a bead of epoxy) and shoot wide open, but THREE BUCKS!! I'll keep looking -- maybe a magnifier lens will top f/1, eh?

I was think a DA 30 f2 with a good metal body, for roughly 500 dollars. So, yes, similar to the FA 31, but including quick shift and specifically designed for a crop sensor (although I don't care if it covers a full frame sensor). I have the DA 35 and it is not quite fast enough, the FA 35's build doesn't do it for me and the FA 31 is very expensive and missing a couple of features that I really like in the DA line (mostly quick shift).
