Thanks for the interest and discussion o the lens. In Australia our Pentaxes come with Sigma lenses so it was quite an experience to put an actual Pentax lens on a Pentax camera and a prime at that.

I have to say that I am hooked-on Pentax lenses and Primes. The colour rendition seems better, contrast etc. Not saying Sigmas are bad (I am very happy with my 55-200 Sigma) I just felt something different about the photos produced by the Pentax lens.

Anyway here is my favourite so far with the SMC M 50mm F/2
F/2 1/80s
