Very interesting stuff. "For pure picture quality, taking bokeh into account, my considered opinion is that the Pentax 50mm f/1.4 is the best fast fifty (and I say that having carefully tested damn near everything out there)." And "the very best AF SLR lenses made today are the Pentax Limiteds." And he's comparing with Zeiss, Leitz, Nikon, Canon, Voigtländer, Minolta, et al. So THERE!
