The SMC Pentax-DA 50mm F1.8 lens— a short tele prime that's perfect for portraits and low-light photography— is currently selling at an incredibly-low price of just $95.78 at B&H Photo. Other US Pentax retailers are not currently showing this price.
The current sale price of $95.78 is $21 lower than the previous sale price and represents a savings of over 60% compared to the MSRP of $229.95. It's also lower than last year's Flack Friday price of $133! We do not know when the lower price will expire.
This fast fifty is also a perfect choice as a second lens if you're currently only shooting with a kit lens. The video below illustrates some of the possibilities that a fast prime opens up:
