Very nice!

I never did buy the 31 as its "stand in" (the DA35) has done such an impeccable job. Maybe one day when I'm rich...

Lovely. I have the same lenses, but I don't have a bag for my 43mm Ltd. So if anybody has a spare one kicking around . . . .

The magic trio...

When I bought my 43mm SRS only had the black in and I couldn't wait. I wish I had more patience!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I got lucky. I only paid 77 full retail price. 31 was new old stock on sale for £345 and 43 was second hand £300

Weren't some off these also made for another mount as well?
I believe it was for Leica...

Found it, the lens is called the Pentax-L 43mm f1.9

I bought an old 50mm off Ebay and it came in a black bag like those (has Japan printed on the bottom but no Pentax stamp anywhere). I will see if I still have it.

I much prefer the black ones but I know a lot of people like the silver better.

Yes, it was only the FA43.

Out of interest, is the WB in your photo slightly off? They look more champagne-coloured than silver. (I'm NOT trying to be critical of the photo, just curious about these wonderful lenses )

the is OK but due to oversaturation and my PPing the lenses gained slight gold tint. In real they are bit more silver...

Nice set of lens.

I'd be interested in taking it off your hands if you still have it Mike.
