Pentax FA 50mm f1.4

Pentax just sent me the Pentax FA 50mm f1.4....I had never used it till I received it today...This is one hell of a lens. I was shooting at f1.8 in natural light and was soooo impressed by the Bokeh...I know that this "a'int" big news, but it sure is for me...

Thanks
Ben

Fa 50 1.4

Ben...I enjoy this lens because of the things you mentioned, but it is a great indoor lens that you can take candid shots without flash. Here is a shot I took of my granddaughter in a local family restaurant and no one seem to care that I was taking the picture......If I had my flash they would have been in a hufff...
P.S. Tell Pentax they can send me a 31 limited... : )

There is some free space in my bag too. So I wouldn't mind if they send me this lens.

Ok, I understand, you posted this 10 years ago and it was hanging in the outbox for some reason that long?

Ben, It's a great lens and far too overlooked sometimes when new Pentax owners see those hot looking Limiteds. This lens is as good, faster and equal in sharpness or bokeh. Well worth consideration over the more costly versions close in focal range.

AND. Here they are:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Most important:
5)

Hope that helps to clear things up.
