Probably first the 31 Limited, followed by the 43 and the 77. No doubt about the performance of these 3 amigos.
But Im really wondering how my FA 20-35/4 will perform on FF

If it dropped in my lap right now, probably the SMC Takumar 28/3.5.

If I can get hold of a 31 Limited or a 50/1.2 A before I score the FF body, I'd use that.

But you know who's going to have the most special, magical first-shot time of all? That very rare handful of people who managed to get their hands on however many examples exist of the prototype Pentax-M 35mm f/1.4.

Why was this lens never produced? Lots of manufacturers make a 35mm 1.4...

The Sigma 70-200 f2.8 and running to the indoor horse arena and shoot a boatload of barrel racing pictures. Then I can see how it measures up to the K-3 and K-5ii.

Not easy considering that no one knows what mount they will be using. For myself if it's still the K-mount i will be using the sigma 50mm f1.4 art lens, sticking with the basics to get a base line feel. 18-55 kit lenses are too unpredictable but that would probably be the next lens to test. I could adapt my nikon d600 FF lenses but i have yet to decide. However i would probably keep the d600 kit as it is and look for something good for the FF pentax. It's always good to have a backup, or two or three.

Are you sure ?
A real Pentax lens would be 21 - 77 f2.5 or something.

If I'm going to use an f/2.5 lens, make mine a 135mm Takumar or K series.
