Lovely shots. The K-5 and FA 43 1:1.9 Limited Make a lovely couple. I also have the K-5 and the FA31, 43 and 77 Limiteds, along with too many other lenses to mention. Happy shooting!

Regards,

Al

Razor sharp images. I like the last one best.

Be careful you do not cut yourself with those sharp images there!

You can always tell the 43mm lens from other Pentax lenses: there is something about the subject that begs to be photographed. It's my favourite lens from all the Pentax primes I own. Nice job!

Really love the catmint (?), the last one. I hope you're happy, now I'm going to have to invest in one of these for my K5.

You will love it. A long time Pentax guy had been telling me for some time to check this lens out. I already had the 31, did not think i would really like this, but the way the lens renders, i love it.

I have the 43mm Limited as well (on a K-r). I really love it for indoor portraits.

Here are a couple:
