Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-FA 43mm F1.9 Limited
Got a silver one used,
while this is a 20 yr old lens, I wanted to give it a try

First impressions was the lens cap and pouch are very nicely made.
Lens feels solid and well made, even though the lettering in the DoF scale had faded

Ran a few quick tests, AF is fast and precise
Bokeh is neutral (below 4), after f/4 is a bit busy
Color rendition is on the bright side (warm)
Pictures are sharp and have good separation of foreground and background even at 1.9, optimal around 8
Basically no flare or ghosts
CA wide open is noticeable in the corners with APS, should be worse in 35mm. Mostly gone at f/5.6

PS. Took the lens on a trip and Purple fringing in the center is very noticeable below f/4, and that bothers me a lot

Center Crop
