If I have a DA40/2.8...

Is it worth looking into getting the FA 50mm f/1.4 and keeping both (right now I just have an old Pentax-M 50/1.4 though might be nice having both a fast lens that can also autofocus).

I have both... I use the DA 40 more, but the 50 is nice for indoor events. A little more reach & faster, so for me it was worth it for me.

kb244, I have the M 50/1.7. I'm replacing it with the A 50/1.7 because it supports some of the features of the K10D that I like to use. I really don't care too much for autofocus, which is why I'm not going for F or FA models. If you have the DA 40/2.8 and the M 50/1.4 and are happy with the duo, then I wouldn't bother just for autofocus.

Though would kind of prefer if I had least the P-A 50/1.4 since on -M the camera isn't exactly accurate on exposure like it is with the Pentax-A lens (though I could just use my handheld light meter, despite the builtin flash still wouldn't work right lol).
