A new favorite - A50/1.4

Well, not new, but the Helios 44K-4 took it's place for a while. But I put it back on today. It rocks. And it's so small. I've been playing with other 50'ish lenses lately. K50/1.2, K55/1.8, M50/1.7, Porst 55/1.2, but the 1.4 outshines them in many ways.

What other A/K/M glass performs this well (keeping in mind that the shots are no better than the photographer)?

Colors - boot is called "Summer & Fruit":


(I know composition could be better, but I found the situation a bit bizarre.)

DOF. Focus is intentional. Couldn't get an image without the big sign in it, so I thought I might as well make it the subject?!
