It arrived today. I only had a few minutes at lunch to give it a quick test run but it's everything I remember from the earlier one I had tried. Near mint condition too. Small scratch on the surface of the hood but otherwise near mint. Looks like it was never used.

The bokeh........

Not bad wide open either. Actually very good. Lenses this fast (like the FA50mm 1.4 etc show the extra value of the K-7's shutter getting you an extra stop at 1/8000. It might be what you need to shoot wide open in daytime without a CPL or ND.

Speaking of speed. There's an Pentax SMC A 50mm 1:1.2 on it's way at this moment.
