F series Lens

I have an opporunity to purchase either or both of the following lens, and would like to know which one is better or should I buy both or would some be interested in them. I do have a A series 50mm 1.7, but I'm not sure.

F smc 28mm 2.8f
F smc 50mm 1.7f

both are selling $aud220 each, which isn't a problem for me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have the F28/2.8. Slightly different optics from the FA28/2.8, but a darn fine lens. Very small & compact.

I had the F50/1.7 until a week ago when I sold it to another forum member, as I already had a FA50/1.4. The F50 is sharp even wide open.

I'm with spam. Buy both. They are small, autofocus & excellent lenses.

Thank you both, I have bought them and now have the A 50 f1.7 for sale, I can't see the value in having two 50mm lens
