Greetings from Eugene, Oregon

Hello to all,
After decades of film camera use, mostly Canon SLRs, I purchased a K10d in late 2007. It's been a joy. My limited budget has limited me to the original DA 18-55mm and DA 50-200mm. Recently, though, I added the FA 50mm which has quickly become my favorite with its wide aperture and accompanying short depth of field. Now I'm lusting for a normal (by digital measures) high-speed lens. The obvious choice is the FA 31mm but it's rather spendy.

You might want to consider the FA35mm f2 a great lens. The other option is to look at the Takumars. I got the 28mm f3.5 for Christmas and it's a great lens. Welcome to the forums.

Yeah, agreeing with Peter. In your situation, Fa 35mm f2 seems a reasonable choice.
