Oops, I did it too! (Pentax A 50mm F1.4)

Crap, I accidentally bid (is it ever an accident, really) on a Pentax A 50mm F1.4; I think I got caught up in bid fever and I'm probably just bored waiting for PMA to come.

Anyway, that means I now have an A 50mm F1.4 alongside my A 50mm F1.7; I'll have to sell at least one of them.

Any recommendations on which to keep/sell?

Of course, there's always that A 50mm F1.2 out on eBay as well...

I sidestepped this decision a bit by getting a Pentax-F 50/1.7. So I can keep the Pentax-A 50/1.4 because it's f1.4 and another 50 for AF. (Both lenses were cheap enough also.) Despite the measurable but small optical differences between the two optical formulas, the A50/1.4 is a really nice looking lens with a big front element. It's just cool to own.

Thanks for the feedback, I guess

I've got my 43mm so I don't really need 3 lenses in that range; guess once I have a chance to compare the two, I'll most likely put the 1.7 up for sale.

Cheers.

But the 1.7 is the sharpest! but I guess you have the 43mm for that.... Why not sell your 43mm to me?
