No dog here - animal forbidden!

for pentax K mount? not many choices:

Both K50/1.2 and A50/1.2 are superb.
I don't have the cosina, but didn't like the bokeh from last time i saw.
Yashinon Tomioka 55/1.2 is nice too, different rending, m42.
Olympus OM 55/1.2 also superb, no mc, but rending so nice. Easy convert to K mount.

Canon fd 55/1.2 and 85/1.2 must use on film bodies or mirrorless like sony nex.

My choice? Tomioka 55/1.2 and/or Olympus OM 55/1.2 in 50-55 range. and 85/1.2 for portraits at f1.2

Olympus OM 55/1.2:

Tomioka 55/1.2:

Pentax K50/1.2:

Canon fd 55/1.2:

Canon fd 85/1.2:

there is also the "Porst K 55 f1.2/ Color Reflex MC 55mm f1.2" Porst 55mm F1.2 Color Reflex MC Auto Lens Reviews - Miscellaneous Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

A cheap alternative to the Pentax/Tomioka ones.
