Very nice lens. Free bump.

This was my second prime lens, after the FA 50 f/1.4, and I still use it all the time. Works great on my K-01 with CDAF for really accurate focusing, and now it's on my new K-50 nearly 75% of the time while I'm indoors. I have no idea whether the FA 31 is worth 3-4 times the price, but the FA 35 is an amazing lower-cost alternative. Best of luck with the sale!

Thanks a lot for the kind words! The only reason I'm selling this lens is because I need a all-around zoom lens (probably the Sigma 18-250). I have both the FA 50 f/1.4 and this lens, and it was a very tough decision on which one to sell.

i've put the fa35 on my sony a7r, it's incredibly bright in the corners, even at f2.0, which is saying a lot... the full-frame 36mp sensor on the a7r makes it very difficult to find wide legacy glass that works for landscapes and such.

i have to use it in manual focus mode of course, which is not the best, because the focus ring is not dampened, but i'm really glad that i have it.

imho, the fa35 is a nice piece of glass.

This lens was my first real working lens. It's still a favorite despite selling to move onto the DA* 55mm. You'll not be sorry for the images out of this.
