ricoh 50mm 2f

Has anyone used this with a K200D?

If yes then how is it?

My main aim is to get a 2nd hand lens for portrait photography. Is this good for the purpose? I'm going for 2nd hand lenses now because they are cheaper. This one is available for 59 euros.

I don't have personal experience with Ricoh lenses, but if it was a Pentax-M (real-time metering only wide-open) 50mm f/2 lens, I wouldn't pay more than 10-20$.
My M50 f/2 is okay-ish. Not the sharpest wide open, or really good built, but sure has the ability to make some interesting shots, and it is quite sharp when stopped down to f/5.6.

In addition, the Ricoh lenses usally have a special pin at the mount, which make the lens getting stuck at the camera. Possible to remove, but a hassle nontheless.
