I like the angles! The 50/1.7 always a winner for me.

The Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 lens was kitted with my "Super Program" body in 1983. Only after using it with my K-30 did I realize how sharp it is.

exactly same situation here, except it was k-50, which helped me to realize how dear this piece of glass is to me!
