Just that it is a physical step up in size over a 43... the K1 is a biggish camera and the 43 doesn't really add to it's size but the 31 seems to... obviously I'm talking degrees of size.... so... a K1 in a small domke bag... ie.. 5xb.... a 31 is the weight and size of a M20 and FA43.... or a 20 and 43 on a 2way cap takes as much room up in your pocket as a 31 on it's own. I own a 31... and like it... but if room is an issue normally go 20 and 43.
Never get the 15-30 then.

I like the 31.... but it can be a bit big at times.
From a guy who loves walking around with the DFA 150-450

The FA31 is smaller than just about any sub-f/2.0 wide angle ever made.

I do not need to hear that.

I hope to stick with my current lenses for 2020. I had so much GAS the last year that I need to just use the stuff I have.
I understand that, same here.
