FA50mm 1.4

I have bought an fa50 1.4 instead of the 55mm 1.4 i was hoping to buy as i couldn't justify the extra expense.
I can't wait to get it

Good move in my opinion. They are both great lenses, despite what DPR said about one of them. But honestly, cannot tell which is shot by which side by side. I got mine for $225 about a month ago, and I hear that the price is creeping up of late.

Enjoy the lens - I'm sure it'll still blow you away with what it can capture.

Taff - the FA50 is a spectacular lens in all regards. You are going to love it.
