Which of the 50-55 fls?

Just got myself a rare (as i don't see much often in the used market) FA 50 1.7, first impression? very sharp, lovely bokeh and i got my first AF prime...

I also have the Revuenon 55mm 1.2 and my question is...

which of the 50-55mm's you still want to keep together with these 2 lenses?

SMC K 55 1.8
SMC/Super Tak 55 1.8
Helios 44-2
M 50 1.7
A 50 1.7

I've had / have a few 50's. The one's I'll always hang onto for one reason or another is my K55 1.8, Super Tak 55 1.8, M 50 1.7 and my Yashica 50 1.4

Each one is a bit different and I can't seem to part with any of them.

I'd keep them all! At least, I'd use each as LOTD (lens of the day) for a day or ten, see how they behave. Then wait a few months and sell your unwanted ones at a very good profit. Pentax lens prices are not falling. PS: I'll reply to your PMs soon.
