In Poland - 900 USdollars!!!
But it is my favourite lens and there was worthy of his price.

W Polsce - 900 dolarów!!!
Ale to mój ulubiony obiektyw i jest wart swojej ceny.

I've heard that but after toughtful considering between the limiteds and this lens It has the focal lenght and speed I most prefer, and the thin dof and bokeh my style of photograph likes

Can't wait!
I know what you are saying, I had all FA ltds but I preferred the FOV/DOF combination of DA*55, although to be fair, my favourite 50ish lens was K50/1.2 I still honestly think it was the best K mount lens I've ever used!
Anyway, as I said, enjoy the lens

I just do't understand why ppl always confuse the two lens: *55/1.8 and FA 50 1.4.
No offense. But these two lens are TOTALLY DIFFERENT purpose, even with the similar FL.
*55 is the successor of the FA * 85/1.4 on the crop sensor. This is a portrait lens.
FA50 is the standard lens from the FILM ERA....personaly talking I think it is some compromise made by Pentax, for not letting us abandon the hope that in the near future there will be a DIGIT FF release.
However, if you are confused---check the *55 price of SIGMA/CN. they should be way more expensive.
Best,

Update

I received the lens today, is perfect exept for a small dent on the outer ring on the lens hood.

Love the size, I don't have any of the limiteds but I can't imagine something smaller. The sound of autofocusing creeped me out.. a slight beep beep sound like my laptop going off or a tv going off...



can't wait to start playing with tomorrow!
