The 31ltd has a special rendering that is extremely pleasing under the right
conditions - something that the technically-perfect DA 35ltd doesn't quite
match. The 31ltd gives a visceral thrill, and it brings a certain... film feeling
to the images. In other words, not perfect, but in the imperfections lie some
of the beauty.








When cropped, the 31ltd can approach the 35 macro's capability, due to
it's incredible resolution:








I prefer (slightly) the bokeh of the FA 31:




The following shots might show what I mean when I say 'film feel' - the 31ltd
can be less consistent than the 35ltd, but occasionally gives you a work of art:

What should really kill you is..... $675.

!

I don't think I've ever seen it lower. If you're going to pull the trigger on this lens, now might be the time!






(looking for quick sale, not profit maximization. Lens is near-perfect.)

That's exactly what's killing me. I want to buy this lens at some point, I want it in black, from someone I can trust, and I want to pay a great price. You're ticking all the boxes...I just don't have the cash right now

Sigh, I'd almost consider doing a trade for a 31mm Ltd with my FA* 24mm... those are some really nice shots.
