Okay. Hopefully it gets here soon so I can figure out how to make it work! I decided to go with the Rikenon-P 50 f/1.7 and later on down the road (hopefully I find another) most likely a Panagor 90mm f/2.8 macro
Hopefully this Ricoh lens delivers as good of results as I have heard about!

I have the sears 50mm 1.7 made by ricoh too. Its a very nice lens (I assume the ricoh version is the same).

Apparently there are two versions of this lens, one made in Japan (that says MADE IN JAPAN) and on made in China (that says RICOH COMPANY, LTD. JAPAN)
Anyone else know about this? Also, if so, is there any build/quality differences in them, or will I get the same results with either?

I haven't heard of this - do you have a link to what you purchased?

Pentax would leave "JAPAN" off the front of the lens if it was made in Taiwan or elsewhere. I don't know about Ricoh.

That one indeed looks newer than anything I've seen. It will most likely perform the same if not a tad better, lens coatings may have been improved. As for the optical formula I'm 99.9% sure its still the same.
