Just took a few test shot. Awesome bokeh, i like it alot. Even it's f1.8, but it's faster than my pentax f1.4.

Congratulations! The Pancolar is a wonderful 50mm, one of my personal favorites. Very sharp with excellent color and contrast. I need to post some of my color shots taken with it, but this B&W demonstrates the Pancolar's sharpness and contrast.
