One of my first lenses with my K10d was the FA50 f/1.4. That was a purchase made with inexperience and too much attention on the magic "1.4", I should have bought the FA35 f/2.0, which was only $20 dollars more at the time (true!), but a much, much more useful focal length for my 'style'. Since then, 35 macro has fulfilled my wishes.
So IMHO, a 35 is completely different and more useful than a 50. A 24mm would be even better.

Just to update you on my final decision guys (since you kindly answer my question) I finally opted for a local Bargain in London (100 pounds) for a new SMC Pentax-DA 35mm F2.4
including 2 years of local warranty. Already grabbed a proper hood as well so once received the items will probably share some shots for windy and winter London UK
Thanks for your support!
