Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited
Bought first copy new. It was AIV. Shockingly soft wide open until about f4. Sent it back and had to fight for a MIJ version. This was much much much much better. Pretty darned sharp from wide open up. Still had some slight issues for my style. On the whole, this was a lens bought based on reputation and not need, so I fully expected its performance to wow, but it didn't. The value for money is downright bad. Focal length is extremely common and there are much saner options available. For this much $$$, the first copy you receive should be bang on, not the second and that after pleading. All in all it was like speed-dating gone bad, and I decided to sell it to recover some funds. EDIT 13-05-2012: I must add, however, that in the right hands with someone who knows how to use it, this lens will produce fantastic images. Unfortunately, I am not in that camp.
