Picked up a Pentax F 50mm f1.7 locally

For $170!! I am pretty happy with the purchase so far. I hope to get years of use out of this lens. I believe that it is a good quality, sharp version of this lens.

Here is an example pic: Taken with a K10d, 200 iso, f1.7, unedited focus on the eye, handheld

I loved my F 50 1.7! It's not one of Pentaxe's nicest-looking lenses, but the image quality was great; I preferred it over the FA 50 1.4.
The only reason I got rid of mine was because I got the DA 55 1.4, but I still miss the lens...

Anyway, congrats! It was a great price, enjoy it.
