hmm, it is signaficantly heavier than my kit lenses though... ?
Get something like a K300/4, use that for 10 minutes, then the F50/1.7 will seem quite light.

You could probably shave a few grams here and there with the M, or go straight to probably the smallest/lightest lens, the DA 40/2.8, but limiting yourself to lenses weighing less than the F50/1.7 will certainly cut your lens buying short.

BUT, what I have noticed after a little bit of use is how HEAVY it is!
That's just what happens when you forget to take your vitamins.
