Sony A7rII falls into my lap...

The FE 28/2 obviously has AF on the Sony and is more compact once you factor in the required adapter with the FA 31, but the FA 31 has the better rendering - I love it on my 42MP Sony sensor. I also find the FA 77 to perform very well (minus the well-documented fringing) on the Sony - just keep in mind the negative impact using Silent or EFCS shutter modes has on bokeh at fast shutter speeds.

Not on your list of lenses, but a couple other Pentax lenses I've enjoyed on the A7RIII are the SMC K 28/3.5, which performs extremely well on modern FF digital sensors with an unmatched flare resistance for a lens that old, and the M 120/2.8 as a great compact tele option for hiking/travel.

The 24-105 is impressively good for a zoom with that range - sharp at all lengths, good build quality etc. It does trade "character" for that sharpness, but it's hard to beat when you need one-lens versatility at a somewhat reasonable size without sacrificing much at all in the way of IQ

After years of massive but very fast and optically superb options, I think people are realizing that there is also a place for complentary options that prioritize compact size, rendering, or both. It's not just Tamron and Samyang - the Voigtlander 35/40/50 Noktons and Sigma's (the last lens maker I expected this from) new 45/2.8 DG DN are other good recent examples for E mount. Also why the FA Ltds remain well regarded among mirrorless shooters

I've been refining my lens kit and am trying to part with some lenses I haven't used in a long time as I narrow in on a collection that works for me (and maaaaybe set aside some money towards a certain upcoming new model). I've never sold here before, so if I'm missing any important info leave a comment or send me a PM.

1. Rokinon 14mm F2.8 ED AS IF UMC for Pentax K - $175 SOLD

Purchased new but rarely used as I actually ended up with two of these. Excellent condition - includes caps, lens pouch and outer box but missing any inserts or manual that may have come in the box originally. Great astro lens

2. SMC Pentax DA L 55-300 F4-5.8 ED - $50. SOLD

Purchased new several years ago, only used for a few months before replacing it with a WR version. Excellent condition, includes caps, manual, original box and all paperwork. Lenstag verified and able to transfer ownership upon sale.

3. SMC Pentax 300mm F4 - $125.

Purchased used, Good condition. A few spots with the finish coming off in the filter threads, couple spots of dust visible upon close inspection of the front element but glass otherwise clean. Focus and aperture rings are smooth and easy to operate, aperture blades are clean. Built-in hood extends smoothly as well.

4. SMC Pentax DA 35 F2.4 - $50. SOLD

Purchased new, Excellent condition. Comes with caps, but no box or paperwork. Lenstag verified and able to transfer ownership upon sale.

Paypal + actual shipping cost. If unsatisified or item not as described just pay to ship it back and I'll refund the item cost.

Happy to answer any additional questions.
