Back in my film days the FA* 24mm F2 was one of my most used lenses. I sold it when I went APS-C (and regret it now that I have a K1) but eventually got one of the Sigma 24mm F1.8's, which is a nice lens although a lot bigger than the FA*.

I don't tend to carry that 24mm much though, as my main lens on the K1 is a 24-70mm F2.8 zoom. While the prime is faster and a little bit sharper the zoom is good at 24mm. Instead of carrying the 24mm I tend to carry either a wide angle zoom (I have a few of those including a Tokina ATX-Pro 18-28mm F2.8 that I thankfully did keep from my film days) or an ultra-wide prime (usually the Samyang 14mm).

I am keeping my eye out for another FA* 24mm though, and if I do get one it'd be fun going out with an old school 3 lens prime set-up and the K1.
