FA31 Limited test shots
Lens: FA 31 Limited Camera: K-5 

I recently acquire the much coveted FA 31mm f1.8 Limited and took it out for test drive, mostly shot wide open. I found that wide open is really hard to nail the focus and after a few attempts settle on -4 micro adjustment in camera, so what do you think? Usable wide open?

All wide open unless stated
1. F5.6



2.



3.



4.



5.



6. f2.8



7. f2.8



8.



9.



10.
