HAha Wow $200 eh? In terms of lens quality, thats pretty good.

Hey Alvin, going from 50/1.7 to 50/1.4 is a rather small light improvement. Plus, you are going to get no where near the buttery smooth focus ring on the FA 50 as you currently do on the M 50. Save your frontal lobe haha.

WHY!!!!!???

LoL

I just got an M50 from the "bay" earlier today, for a fraction of that cost. not 1.4 and it's mf, but, it's better bang for the buck. LoL..

maybe another time

Glad you were able to pick one up. You'll really enjoy it.

Unfortunately, there will always be someone who wants to minimize your joy when you buy something "new".

I have the A50mm 1.7 but my autofocus skills are killing me so I have been looking for about a week now for this lens. hope to have it before a trip to Boston on Friday.

Since I'm getting the * 16-50mm, I'm regretting selling my FA50/1.4.

The FA35/2 that I currently have is not as different.
