Thank you all for your explanations.

I guess the FA50 is the way to go..

Does anyone have heard anything about the new DA*55?

There's always one more lens.

Since you're throwing things open, and speaking not so much from personal experience as from community knowledge, I'd say the best 50mm lens is the 43mm limited. First of all it's crafted like the finest Swiss watch and secondly the extra FOV helps if you're wanting more context in your portraits.

You can get it for a tad under $400.

Hey,

I opted for the convenience of AF an just pulled the trigger on the FA50.

the best price i found in EU was 144Gbp (290$) shipped.

Buying from B&H is cheaper, but customs here are very strict with imports :S with taxes it would cost me about the same as buying here in EU.

In Australia i think customs only taxes packages over 1000$, here in Portugal, everything over 30€ is taxed with 21% VAT.

I already had an M40 and i preferred the FOV of the FA35 over the M40. My ideal lens would be the FA77, but it's way too expensive for me.
