Sigma 50 1.4

Hey guys just wondering if any of you have used the new Sigma 50 1.4. After seeing less than stellar news on the DA* 55mm I'm thinking of getting this lens. I have a buddy who bought this lens for his E3 and its tack sharp. Just curious how this lens work on a pentax system

These folks think the Pentax is a better lens. (scroll down to the "alternatives" section in the small window.

Here is their review of the Pentax.

I agree, the fa 50 f1.4 is a winner, every Pentax owner should have one in his bag, great price for a great lens.

Hey guys Thanks for your response. I also own the fa 50 1.4 and yes it is a decent lens. I'm curious if anyone has tried the sigma lens on a pentax system. Like I said before this lens rocks on an E3, its way sharper than the pentax fa 50mm f1.4 IMO. I'm curious if the sigma lens is just as good on the K20 as it is on the E3. So I was hoping that maybe someone here may have actual experience with the Sigma on the K mount. And what their impression of the lens is.
