Pentax A/FA 20mm f/2.8 or equivalent fast lens

I'm considering to buy a Pentax A/FA 20mm f/2.8 or equivalent fast lens to compliment my Pentax DA* 55mm f/1.4 and Pentax SMC-A 135mm f/2.8 as an always carry in the belt pack for an upcoming 2.5 month working trip through Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and India.

Please understand I'm hoping to acquire something, but not pressing on it too heavily. Worst case is visit Camera Clinic for a budget wide until I find that good if not great deal.

If you contact me, please include images of the lens and those taken by it.

Shipping would be to a PayPal confirmed address, though local meetup and cash is possible north of Seattle. I'm on Whidbey Island; Coupeville 98239 for those computing shipping costs.

DA21 is just 1/3 of a stop "slower" than the FA20 (f/3.2 vs f/2.8) and I say "slower" because even 20mm/4 is faster then 135mm/2.8... Know what I mean?

@zeops, I'd seen it. However, the price is high enough that I might as well buy it new. Further, you don't have photos to truly show off the lens condition or that of the accessories to go with it to justify the price asked.

FA20s don't sell much cheaper than that, at least not from what I can see on this site
There is a link for more pictures in the listing, and if anyone needs I can sure provide more pics of the lens and included caps, just ask.
